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...

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...

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...

Biophysics plays key role in immune system signaling and response

(Georgia Institute of Technology) How big you are may be as important as what you look like, at least to immune system cells watching for dangerous bacteria and viruses.

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...

Modified virus could turn immune system on liver cancer

News report A modified virus could be used to launch an immune attack on liver cancer cells, a new study has revealed.  Researchers at the University of Leeds found that a modified form of Reoviru...

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...

Impact of NKT Cells and LFA-1 on Liver Regeneration under Subseptic Conditions.

Activation of the immune system in terms of subseptic conditions during liver regeneration is of paramount clinical importance. However, little is known about molecular mechanisms and their mediators ...

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 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...
