Sammanfattning : Abstract Infectious diseases are a leading cause of death in sub-Saharan Africa, and in Rwanda diarrhea, lower respiratory and other common infections are linked to high mortality and morbidity. For children ... LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Many T=3 plant and insect viruses use a molecular switch in form of order/disorder of a segment of the polypeptide chain to regulate the quasi-equivalent contacts. The structure of a mutant of the T=3 capsid of bacteriophage fr confirms that this virus and other members of the Leviviridae family lack a switch mechanism. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Drosophila melanogaster has been extensively used as a model organism to study diverse facets of biology, including host-pathogen interactions and the basic biology of its pathogens. I have used the fruit fly as a model to study elementary aspects of Nora virus biology, such as the role of the different proteins encoded by the virus genome. LÄS MER
4. Influenza A Virus : Spatial analysis of influenza genome trafficking and the evolution of the neuraminidase protein
Sammanfattning : Influenza A viruses (IAVs) are a common infectious agent that seasonally circulates within the human population that causes mild to severe acute respiratory infections. The severity of the infection is often related to how the virus has evolved with respect to the pre-existing immunity in the population. LÄS MER
5. Targeting Infectious Disease : Structural and functional studies of proteins from two RNA viruses and Mycobacterium tuberculosis
Sammanfattning : The recent emergence of a number of new viral diseases as well as the re-emergence of tuberculosis (TB), indicate an urgent need for new drugs against viral and bacterial infections.Coronavirus nsp1 has been shown to induce suppression of host gene expression and interfere with host immune response.
