New neuron-like cells allow investigation into synthesis of vital cellular components

A new method to create synthetic neurons allows researchers to investigate how the human brain makes metabolic building blocks essential for the survival of all living organisms. A new study describes a core enzyme involved in the synthesis of these building blocks, called purines, and how the enzyme might change during infection by herpes simplex […]

Newfound protein may prevent viral infection, herpes-induced cancer

A human protein has been identified that could prevent cancer by restricting a type of herpes virus from replicating. Most people are infected by several herpes viruses by the time they reach adulthood. Learning how to stop herpes virus 8 from spreading may hint to how to prevent the other seven types, such as the […]

Hush little virus, don't say a word: How scientists investigate sleeping viruses

Four in five adults are infected with herpes simplex virus, say researchers, but most don’t show symptoms like cold sores because the virus infection is ‘latent’ — sleeping — within the nervous system. While many virus researchers are interested in understanding what causes these sleeping viruses to wake up, or reactivate, scientists are now trying […]

Exploring how herpes simplex virus changes when passed between family members

A new study offers a rare glimpse into the genetics of a herpes simplex virus transmission event — information that may prove useful in future development of therapeutics and vaccines. The study reveals nearly perfect genetic transmission of the virus from a father to his son and lays the foundation for future studies exploring the […]
