Adenine is one of the four bases in DNA that make up the letters ATGC, adenine is the "A". The others are guanine, cytosine, and thymine. Adenine always pairs with thymine.
Researchers explore a mutational signature related to molnupiravir in SARS-CoV-2 sequencing datasets.
Researchers reported on the clinical and molecular characteristics of MPXV infections in Finland.
Researchers described the evolution of the mpox virus (MPXV) before the 2022 outbreak.
A recent study identified inhibitors for SARS-CoV-2 non-structural protein 14 (Nsp14).
Researchers investigated the ability of kinetin (N6-furfurylaminopurine, MB-905) to inhibit severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) proliferation in vitro.
A new CRISPR-Cas9 approach that targets a detrimental signaling pathway in the heart confers protection from ischemia/reperfusion injury, according to a study in mice.
Researchers investigated the main source of editing of the 2022 mpox virus genome.
A new study published in the journal Science aimed to summarize the commonly studied anti-aging dietary interventions and their impact on human health and longevity.
Researchers uncovered a novel mechanism that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and other coronaviruses (CoVs) use to exploit host antiviral immune system to facilitate their replication.
In a recent article published in Cell, researchers proposed that 12 distinctive traits of aging are all inter-related.
Scientists from the National University of have discovered a novel low-cost method of testing for cancers.
In our cells, the language of DNA is written, making each of us unique. A tandem repeat occurs in DNA when a pattern of one or more nucleotides – the basic structural unit of DNA coded in the base of chemicals cytosine (C), adenine (A), guanine (G) and thymine (T) – is repeated multiple times in tandem. An example might be: CAG CAG CAG, in which the pattern CAG is repeated three times.
Soon after cholesterol and fat start depositing on the lining of the blood vessels that supply your heart, the smooth muscle cells that give the blood vessels strength and flexibility start to get bigger and multiply.
The conversations between our bone and muscle change as we age, and both are the weaker for it, Medical College of Georgia scientists say.
Researchers used whole genome sequencing to evaluate monkeypox virus samples from Washington and Ohio states in the United States and identified 25 samples with open reading frame (ORF)-disrupting mutations.
Researchers examined the role of epigenetic modifications of the host cell gene expression in determining the pathophysiology of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and explored the use of vitamin D as a therapeutic agent against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
A new paper reviews current knowledge of RdRp inhibitors that could be developed further to provide broadly effective antivirals against SARS-CoV-2 in particular and CoVs in general.
In a new study, researchers explored the crystalline structure of the monkeypox (MPX) virus (MPXV) and the complex of VP39, a 2′-O-RNA methyltransferase (MTase) and sinefungin, a pan-MTase inhibitor.
A new review to be posted in the Virus Research journal aims to provide an overview of the recent advances reported concerning hMPXV virology.
