    A natural variant of the essential host gene MMS21 restricts the parasitic 2-micron plasmid in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Michelle Hays et al.
    A novel assay to measure 2-micron stability together with a survey of natural variation among Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains reveals novel means by which yeasts can combat the parasitic 2-micron plasmids.

    Hepatitis C virus exploits cyclophilin A to evade PKR

    Che C Colpitts et al.
    Hepatitis C virus evades IRF1-dependent intrinsic antiviral immunity by exploiting cyclophilin A and its regulation of PKR.

    The phage L capsid decoration protein has a novel OB-fold and an unusual capsid binding strategy

    Rebecca L Newcomer et al.
    The structure of phage L's Dec demonstrates a new fold within this family of proteins, and shows modulation of capsid binding occurs through two sites, with site 1 being preferred.

    Single-cell transcriptional dynamics of flavivirus infection

    Fabio Zanini et al.
    A novel virus-inclusive single cell RNA-Seq approach enables identification of novel pro- and antiviral host factors in human cells in response to dengue and Zika virus infection.

    Expression levels of MHC class I molecules are inversely correlated with promiscuity of peptide binding

    Paul E Chappell et al.
    The number of different peptides presented by major histocompatibility complex class I molecules to the immune system's T lymphocytes is inversely correlated with cell surface expression and is strongly associated with the response to infectious disease.

    Complement and CD4+ T cells drive context-specific corneal sensory neuropathy

    Derek J Royer et al.
    The complement pathway can contribute to corneal sensation loss and nerve damage during ocular surface inflammation.

    Differences across cyclophilin A orthologs contribute to the host range restriction of hepatitis C virus

    Jenna M Gaska et al.
    Incompatibilities between the viral replication machinery and orthologs of the essential host factor cyclophilin A (CypA) contribute to the narrow host range of hepatitis C virus.

    Bystander hyperactivation of preimmune CD8+ T cells in chronic HCV patients

    Cécile Alanio et al.
    Naïve CD8+ T cells are dysregulated during chronic hepatitis C (HCV) infection, and this is reversible after viral clearance.

    Science Forum: SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) by the numbers

    Yinon M Bar-On et al.
    Key numbers about the biology of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the infection of a single human host by the virus have been compiled from the peer-reviewed literature.
