Scientists Identify Two Genes that ‘Shut Down’ HIV-1 Virus

An international group of researchers has identified genes that disable HIV-1, suggesting a promising new strategy for battling the virus that causes AIDS. In their two studies, the scientists found that host cell membrane proteins called SERINC5 and SERINC3 greatly reduce the virulence of HIV-1 by blocking the ability of the virus to infect new [...] —> Read More
