For the first time, researchers identify key proteins that may make Zika so deadly

Until it burst onto the scene earlier this year, Zika was an obscure, little-known virus. As a result, scientists know little about how it works. Over the past year, they have learned that it can cause a range of dangerous health problems, including birth defects such as microcephaly and neurolo... Read More

Fungus-infecting virus could help track spread of white-nose syndrome in bats

A newly discovered virus infecting the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome in bats could help scientists and wildlife agencies track the spread of the disease that is decimating bat populations in the United States, a new study suggests.

Regional variations in this virus could provide clue... Read More

Microbiomes in far-flung places: characterizing the arctic Inuit gut microbiome

The hamlet of Resolute Bay is a tiny Arctic village in the Nunavut territory of Canada with a population that hovers at or below 300. Over hundreds of perhaps even thousands of years, the traditional Inuit diet in Resolute Bay and elsewhere has been dictated by the Arctic environment. The diet i... Read More

How to be a successful food borne pathogen: step 1, grow on food

Food microbiology is an important issue we cover on this blog, because food safety is vital to prevent foodborne illness. The use of technologies like whole-genome sequencing help identify and pinpoint the source of microbial contaminants, but how do microbes become contaminants in the first pla... Read More

IDRI contributes to first point-of-care Chagas disease diagnostic for US

With Chagas disease becoming more prevalent in the United States, a diagnostic to quickly and easily detect infection is needed. Today, IDRI (Infectious Disease Research Institute) announces that a fusion antigen it developed and patented is being used as part of a Chagas disease diagnostic test... Read More

Threading the RSV vaccine needle

Crafting a vaccine against RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) has been a minefield for 50 years, but scientists believe they have found the right balance.

Researchers at Emory University School of Medicine and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta report that they have engineered a version of RSV t... Read More

Flaviviruses unexpectedly shut off host translation

It was a peer review request that got Alessia Ruggieri and her group at University of Heidelberg to look more closely at how Dengue virus manipulates the cellular translation and stress machineries during infection.

In a previous study, Ruggieri showed that Hepatitis C virus infection induced... Read More

Bacterial communities of the female genital tract impact HIV infection risk

A team of researchers from the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard has found that the most common bacterial community in the genital tract of healthy South African women is associated with a more than four-fold increase in the risk of acquiring HI...

Outbreak of H7N2 Flu in Cats

Many mBiosphere readers will know that the influenza A virus infects multiple species, and this ability to infect birds, humans, and other mammals such as pigs is one of the ways virions can exchange genetic information, leading to new viruses able to cause major outbreaks. However, few mBiosphe... Read More

Super “Resolution”: Reflections on Microscopy in the New Year

As we shake off the holidays, 2017 brings a new opportunity for personal reflection. For many trainees, it is also a great time to focus one’s professional goals, including those related to microbiology and microscopy. In celebration of the new year, I’d like to reflect on some of the advanced m... Read More

Infant's prolonged infection reveals mutation that helps bacteria tolerate antibiotics

A life-threatening infection in an infant with leukemia led to a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital discovery of how prolonged infection sets the stage for bacterial persistence despite antibiotic susceptibility

The quest to understand a prolonged infection in an infant being treated for l... Read More

Bacterial protein structure could aid development of new antibiotics

Bacterial cells have an added layer of protection, called the cell wall, that animal cells don’t. Assembling this tough armor entails multiple steps, some of which are targeted by antibiotics like penicillin and vancomycin.

Yet one step in the process has remained a mystery because the molecu... Read More

TWiV 423: Dry, well formed, and light brown

The TWiV academia discuss induction of diarrhea by the capsid protein of an astrovirus, and association of a fungal RNA virus with white-nose syndrome of North American bats.

NIAID officials call for continued Zika research

Although cases of Zika virus infection appear to be decreasing, the mosquito-borne virus likely will become endemic in the Americas and continue to cause outbreaks and sporadic cases. Given the serious complications of Zika virus infection, particularly in cases of congenital infection, research... Read More

Cholera bacteria infect more effectively with a simple twist of shape

The bacteria that cause the life-threatening disease cholera may initiate infection by coordinating a wave of mass shapeshifting that allows them to more effectively penetrate the intestines of their unwitting victims, according to a study led by Princeton University.

The researchers discover... Read More

First Full Genome Analysis Solves the Mystery of How Zika Got So Dangerous

The mention of Zika can strike fear in the hearts of pregnant women. With infections increasing around the world, including in the US, researchers are fighting the clock to figure out how the virus can have such horrific effects in some people. Read More
