a Novel Adaptive Antiviral Defense Mechanism in Animals
UCR scientists discover a novel adaptive antiviral defense mechanism in animals
Scientists at the University of California, Riverside have grabbed the cover of the May 17 issue of Science with research about "RNA silencing," a novel adaptive antiviral defense in the animal kingdom. Shou-Wei Ding, assistant professor of plant pathology, discovered that when animal cells are attacked by a virus, the cells use RNA silencing to protect themselves from the virus. The discovery could lead to new gene therapies and vaccine designs.
