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...

Influenza Viruses Can Hide from Immune System

Influenza is able to mask itself, so that the virus is not initially detected by our immune system. This is the result of new research from Aarhus University. The researchers behind the study hope tha...

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.

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...

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 ...

Receptor suppresses the immune response in order to save it

When viruses enter the body, they activate receptors on the surface of cells that allow viruses to invade those cells. A Yale-led team has found that one of the receptors, known as AXL, actually plays...

Grant to investigate if antibiotics could disrupt immune system function lifelong if taken when young

A new grant has been awarded to scientists looking into whether taking antibiotics early in life can disrupt the immune system function throughout a person’s life. Regardless of age, antibiotics tem...

Alcohol intoxication perturbs immune system of aged individuals

The immune system in the elderly is dysfunctional and infections are more prevalent, more severe, and harder to defeat. Drinking alcohol has a variety of damaging effects on the immune system and orga...

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...
