The Zika virus has become established in more than 80 countries, infected millions of people, and left many babies with birth defects. Although scientists have made progress in their understanding of the virus, it would be premature to think that the Zika pandemic is now under control and will not reemerge, perhaps more aggressively, say experts.

Viruses Can Transfer Genes Across Domains of Life, Research Shows

Added: 19.12.2017 5:34 | 3 views | 0 comments

Viruses can transfer genes to organisms they are not known to infect, including organisms in different domains (superkingdoms) of life, according to a study published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology. Viruses can sometimes infect very different organisms during their lifecycle, such as mosquitoes and humans in the case of Zika virus. They can also [...]

How Zika virus induces congenital microcephaly

Added: 12.12.2017 14:27 | 3 views | 0 comments

Epidemiological studies show that in utero fetal infection with the Zika virus (ZIKV) may lead to microcephaly, an irreversible congenital malformation of the brain characterized by an incomplete development of the cerebral cortex. However, the mechanism of Zika virus-associated microcephaly remains unclear. Scientists have now identified a specific mechanism leading to this microcephaly.
