Emory scientists have been probing the RNA packaging factors that limit reassortment between avian H7N9/H5N8 strains and a well-known strain (H3N2) that has been dominating the last few human flu seasons in the United States. Mix and match still occurred at a low level, particularly with H5N8.

Early dengue virus infection could 'defuse' zika virus

Added: 22.05.2019 5:18 | 2 views | 0 comments

The Zika virus outbreak in Latin America has affected over 60 million people up to now. The infection can have potentially fatal consequences for pregnant women and their unborn children: many children have subsequently been born with malformations of the head (microcephaly). A particularly high incidence of these Zika-associated malformations exists in northeastern Brazil. Scientists tried to find out the reasons for this regional cluster and discovered a surprising protective factor.

Neuroscientists find brain pathway supporting an intersection of taste and pain

Added: 22.05.2019 5:18 | 2 views | 0 comments

Neuroscientists have found a pathway in the brain where taste and pain intersect in a new study that originally was designed to look at the intersection of taste and food temperature. This study was the first time researchers have shown that taste and pain signals come together in the brain and use the same circuitry.
