Antibody classes

An antibody, also known as an immunoglobulin, is a large Y-shaped protein used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses. The antibody recognizes a...

Tumor Immunology

Tumor Immunology is a field of medical science developing to understand tumors, and use the body natural immune system to develop new anti-cancer treatments. Cancer is arguably one of the most impor...

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that exists in three major chemical forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine. It is commenly used in the body as a co-enzyme, and thus regulates many of t...

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus SLE

Lupus is an autoimmune disease characterized by acute and chronic inflammation of various tissues of the body. Because the antibodies and accompanying cells of inflammation can affect tissues anywhe...

Scientists uncover a clever ranking strategy bacteria use to fight off viruses

Like humans, bacteria come under attack from viruses and rely on an immune system to defend themselves. A bacterial immune system known as CRISPR helps microbes "remember" the viruses they encounter a...

Mobilizing the Immune System to Fight Viruses

Last week marked the 20th anniversary of professors Doherty and Zinkernagel's Nobel Prize in Medicine for discoveries concerning the immune system. Twenty years on, and Monash University-based researc...

Researchers reveal novel mechanism by which viral protein VII suppresses immune alarm signals

Viruses must avoid a host's immune system to establish successful infections—and scientists have discovered another tool that viruses use to frustrate host defenses.

Neuroscientists identify new regulator of immune system

Cells of the immune system can distinguish between protein molecules that are "self" and "non-self". ­For example, if we are exposed to pathogens such as bacteria or viruses that carry foreign molecu...

Discriminating self from non-self in nucleic acid sensing

The detection of viruses by the immune system is mediated predominantly by the sensing of nucleic acids. Here, the authors review our current understanding of how this complex immune sensory system di...

Mobilizing our immune system to fight viruses

(Monash University) Last week marked the 20th anniversary of Professors Doherty and Zinkernagel's Nobel Prize in Medicine for discoveries concerning the immune system. Twenty years on, and Monash Uni...

Viral protein silences immune alarm signals

Viruses must avoid a host's immune system to establish successful infections—and scientists have discovered another tool that viruses use to frustrate host defenses. Researchers from The Children's ...

Scientists Discover how Insect-Borne Viruses ‘Suppress’ the Immune System to Cause Disease

Arboviruses – viruses transmitted by insects such as mosquitoes – pose a considerable threat to both human and animal health. Despite that, not enough is known about the complex interacti...

Unique CD8+ T Cell-Mediated Immune Responses Primed in the Liver.

The liver immune environment is tightly regulated to balance immune activation with immune tolerance. Understanding the dominant immune pathways initiated in the liver is important because the liver i...

Trade-offs for viruses in overcoming innate immunities in plants.

Plants recognize viral infection via an immune receptor: nucleotide-binding site (NB)-leucine-rich repeat (LRR) proteins. Another immune receptor, receptor-like kinase/proteins, which share an LRR dom...

Stress responses sculpt the insect immune system, optimizing defense in an ever-changing world.

A whole organism, network approach can help explain the adaptive purpose of stress-induced changes in immune function. In insects, mediators of the stress response (e.g. stress hormones) divert molecu...

Host-virus interactions in hepatitis B and hepatitis C infection.

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are among the most endemic pathogens worldwide, with more than 500 million people globally currently infected with these viruses. These pathogens ca...

Host Resistance and Immune Aging.

Human immune system aging results in impaired responses to pathogens or vaccines. In the innate immune system, which mediates the earliest pro-inflammatory responses to immunologic challenge, processe...
