hRSV N inhibits the T-cell immune synapse [Immunology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 12:32
Human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) is the leading cause of bronchiolitis and pneumonia in young children worldwide. The recurrent hRSV outbreaks and reinfections are the cause of a significant public health burden and associate with an inefficient antiviral immunity, even after disease resolution. Although several mouse- and human cell-based studies...

Free ribosomal subunits are not nucleoid-excluded [Genetics]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 12:32
Biochemical and genetic data show that ribosomes closely follow RNA polymerases that are transcribing protein-coding genes in bacteria. At the same time, electron and fluorescence microscopy have revealed that ribosomes are excluded from the Escherichia coli nucleoid, which seems to be inconsistent with fast translation initiation on nascent mRNA transcripts....

Regulation of SNAT2 by estradiol-17{beta} [Medical Sciences]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 12:32
The sodium-coupled neutral amino acid transporter 2 (SNAT2) translocates small neutral amino acids into the mammary gland to promote cell proliferation during gestation. It is known that SNAT2 expression increases during pregnancy, and in vitro studies indicate that this transporter is induced by 17β-estradiol. In this study, we elucidated the...
