Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes and causes Chikungunya fever. CHIKV occurs in the tropical and subtropical parts of the world. Regions where it has already caused epidemics include Africa, territories around the Indian Ocean, Southeast Asia, and … Continue reading
Molecular biology of hepatitis B virus infection Continue reading
Oncogenic viruses, with the exception of HCV, require the host RNA splicing machinery in order to exercise their oncogenic activities. Continue reading
Research on morbillivirus infections has led to exciting developments in recent years. Continue reading
This review discusses the structural and mechanistic basis of innate immune antagonism by two direct effectors, the Rotavirus NSP1 and VP3 proteins. It starts with a nice overview of Rotavirus biology then goes on to describe how the structural and … Continue reading
Why does the immune system fail to clear some virus (and other infections) and allow a state of chronic infection to occur? Continue reading
“[the] molecular biology of higher organisms does not stand on the shoulder of giants, but on the shoulder of dwarfs like phage T4 and lambda.” Continue reading
