      Altered 'Coat' Disguises Fatal Brain Virus from Neutralizing Antibodies

      A genetic modification in the 'coat' of a brain infection-causing virus may allow it to escape antibodies, according to researchers. They say testing people for this and other viral ...

      Engineered Immune Cells Elicit Broad Response to HIV in Mice, Offering Hope for Vaccine

      Unlike so many other deadly viruses, HIV still lacks a vaccine. The virus has proven especially tricky to prevent with conventional antibodies, in part because it evolves so rapidly in the body. A ...

      Vibrations of Coronavirus Proteins May Play a Role in Infection

      New research finds vibrations of the protein spikes on coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2, play a crucial part in allowing the virus to penetrate human cells. The findings could help determine how ...

      Existing UV Light Technology Has Potential to Reduce COVID-19 Transmission Indoors

      A recent study has shown that a UV light technology already used to prevent the spread of other airborne diseases in buildings has the potential to be effective against ...

      Lurking in Genomic Shadows: How Giant Viruses Fuel the Evolution of Algae

      Biologists have recently discovered that endogenous viral elements that originate from giant viruses are much more common in chlorophyte green algae than previously ...

      Gut Microbiome Manipulation Could Result from Virus Discovery

      Scientists have discovered how a common virus in the human gut infects and takes over bacterial cells -- a finding that could be used to control the composition of the gut microbiome, which is ...

      Coinfection: More Than the Sum of Its Parts

      Infections with two pathogens pose a serious threat in the clinics. Researchers have developed a technique that provides new insights into this process and can be used as an early warning ...

      Studies Focus on SARS-CoV-2 Transmission in Domestic Cats, Pigs

      Two recently published studies include important findings related to SARS-CoV-2 transmission and the COVID-19 pandemic: Domestic cats can be asymptomatic carriers of SARS-CoV-2, but pigs are unlikely ...

      How the Polio Vaccine Virus Occasionally Becomes Dangerous

      The polio vaccines heralded the elimination of polio from the U.S., saving countless children from sudden paralysis and death. In the developing world, however, outbreaks of poliovirus still occur ...

      COVID-19 Highlights Risks of Wildlife Trade

      Researchers say that more epidemics resulting from animal hosts are inevitable unless urgent action is taken. To protect against future pandemics, they call for governments to establish effective ...

      Seeking the Most Effective Polymers for Personal Protective Equipment

      Personal protective equipment, like face masks and gowns, is generally made of polymers. But not much attention is typically given to the selection of polymers used beyond their physical properties. ...

      Once-Discounted Binding Mechanism May Be Key to Targeting Viruses

      Researchers detail subtle stabilizing effects in cells' ability to recognize coronaviruses that compromise the immune system. The discovery could lead to new targets to prevent ...

      Chemists Discover the Structure of a Key Coronavirus Protein

      Chemists have determined the molecular structure of a protein found in the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This protein forms a cation-selective channel and plays a key role in the virus's ability to ...

      Mimicking SARS-CoV-2 Nasal Infection in Monkeys

      A new rhesus macaque animal model recapitulates the clinical and pathological manifestations of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) observed in humans by mimicking natural infection via the nasal ...

      Rats Are Capable of Transmitting Hantavirus

      Researchers have confirmed Germany's first-ever case of animal-to-human transmission involving a specific species of virus known as the 'Seoul virus'. Researchers were able to confirm ...

      Largest Set of Mammalian Genomes Reveals Species at Risk of Extinction

      Researchers have released the whole genomes of more than 80 percent of all mammalian families, spanning almost 110 million years of evolution. The dataset includes genomes from more than 120 species ...

      Uncovering Novel Genomes from Earth's Microbiomes

      The known diversity of bacteria and archaea has been expanded by 44% through a publicly available collection of more than 52,000 microbial genomes from environmental samples, resulting from a ...

      Sugar-Coated Viral Proteins Hijack and Hitch a Ride out of Cells

      Many viruses - including coronaviruses -- have protective outer layer made of proteins, fats and sugars. New research shows targeting sugar production has potential for broad-spectrum antiviral ...
