Bat-borne influenza viruses enter host cells by utilizing surface exposed MHC-II molecules of various species, including humans. Now, an international research team from Germany (Medical Center—University of Freiburg and Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut, island of Riems) and the United States (Colorado State University, Fort Collins and Kansas State University, Manhattan) addressed concerns about the zoonotic spill-over potential and discovered an unexpected high genetic plasticity of the bat influenza virus H18N11 with unpredictable consequences.

Researchers from Oxford University have worked out the molecular structure of a protein that is vital for survival of the flu virus. Recently published in Nature, they used several different techniques to look at the arrangement of atoms within a protein that the human flu virus uses to make new copies of its genetic information. Without this multifunctional protein, known as a polymerase, the flu virus cannot survive. A key finding of the study is that the polymerase can exist in two forms, a monomer and a dimer. It is only when the polymerase dimerises that specific functions are switched on. The research team saw the dimeric form of the polymerase was formed by a specific region of protein and when the region was disrupted, the polymerase couldn't work. This finding presents a brand-new way of potentially inhibiting the flu virus which means we could develop new drugs and flu treatments in

A new study from the labs of Roberto Piacentini and Claudio Grassi (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Roma, Italy)  provides novel evidence that herpes simplex virus type‐1 (HSV‐1) infection reduces neural stem cell proliferation and neuronal differentiation, thus affecting adult hippocampal neurogenesis. Writing in STEM CELLS, Li Puma et al. suggest the neurogenic niche of the hippocampus as a highly vulnerable target of HSV‐1 and add a new layer of information on the pathogenic role of HSV‐1 in neurodegenerative diseases. Considering the primary purpose of adult hippocampal neurogenesis in learning and memory, the effects of HSV‐1 on neural stem cells might significantly contribute to neurodegeneration and cognitive decline.
