The Epstein-Barr virus.
The Epstein-Barr virus , a virus of the herpes family, has two distinct life phases: After infecting a cell initially goes into a resting phase. Under certain circumstances, activated activated and then induced tumor growth promoting or its synthesis in the cell. Especially in patients with weakened immune systems can cause EBV their host cells to divide uncontrollably caused tumor tumor. Chemically modified: Somecauses for the transition from the resting phase of EBV in an active mode, in particular in view of the factors responsible and function function as the molecular mechanisms hitherto not. With their findings, the scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum M? Nchen discovered how the virus terminates latency and activates its synthesis in the infected cells. – Professor Wolfgang Hammerschmidt, Munich Head of the Department of Gene Vectors, Helmholtz Zentrum M, said: ‘We now have the crucial function of the viral BZLF1 protein identified: It activates the genes of EBV, which are essential for the propagation of virus particles.
With lab-grown AML cells, the researchers identified the series of molecules that of of KIT protein, showing for the first time that a microRNA called miR – 29b, along with several well-known cancer genes regulate KIT production.Kaisernetwork.org are used as official webcaster the meeting See the lead in coverage and every webcast, interviews and an daily video round up of.
