Institute, saidl,’prion-like proteins Boost Immune Response – a person’s ability to fight viruses at the cellular level remarkably resembles the way deadly pathogen called prions misfold and cluster native proteins to disease, UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers cause report. – This study marks the first discovery of the so-called ‘good ‘prion-like proteins in human cells , and the first to find such proteins recognize immunity recognizes the way the body reacts to threats by viruses or other external agents, said Dr. Zhijian ‘James ‘Chen, professor of molecular biology and senior author of of the study, the fifth in the August print issue of the journal Cell. – ‘An understanding of how cells maintain can good prion-like proteins called MAVS[ mitochondrial antiviral signaling] protein help us to understand how some prions make bad,’Dr.
‘ ‘Carlos Slim makes a visionary commitment to public health in the Americas region in two ways,’said Dr. CEO and president of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. ‘First, to the knowledge that progress in public health on a foundation of scientific understanding of the genetic basis of disease can be established. Secondly, recognizing the intensification of scientific relations between the U.S. And Mexico can great benefits for both countries. We are looking forward make common cause make common cause with our colleagues in Mexico ‘. To ensure benefit benefit the science and the population in general, the main beneficiary of its findings be the National Institute for Genomic Medicine.
The Mavs ‘ prion-like mechanism does not indicate the out – of-control replication are seen in disease-causing prions, said Dr. Continue reading
