Defective Viral Genomes Stimulate the Anti-RSV Immune Response

Defective Viral Genomes Stimulate the Anti-RSV Immune Response

During replication in its human host respiratory syncytial virus generates large numbers of defective genomes, which have been found to stimulate the host's immune system to fight off the viral infection.  More...

Blocking Phosphatidylcholine Synthesis Lowers Levels of Circulating Lipids in Mouse Hyperlipidemia Model

Cardiovascular disease researchers seeking new ways to treat hyperlipidemia found that inhibition of the gene encoding a protein required for biosynthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major cell membrane component, in a mouse model resulted in decreased levels of lipids in circulation.   More...

Blocking the MicroRNA That Controls Angiogenesis Slows Breast Tumor Growth in a Diabetic Mouse Model

A team of molecular biologists demonstrated that it was possible to inhibit growth of breast tumors in a diabetic mouse model by injecting the animals with an antagonist of the microRNA that controls the process of angiogenesis.  More...
