Phylogenetic analysis of the first four SARS‐CoV‐2 cases in Chile
TLDR
This work studied the complete genome of the first four cases of the new coronavirus disease in Chile, from patients who traveled to Europe and Southeast Asia, and reveals at least two different viral variants entries to Chilean territory, coming from Europe and Asia.
Nucleolin Interacts with US11 Protein of Herpes Simplex Virus 1 and Is Involved in Its Trafficking
TLDR
An increase in the nucleolar accumulation of US11 is found in nucleolin-depleted cells, thereby revealing that nucleolin could play a role in US11 nucleocytoplasmic trafficking through one-way directional transport out of the nucleolus.
Identification of Rep-Associated Factors in Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1-Induced Adeno-Associated Virus Type 2 Replication Compartments
TLDR
A proteomic analysis of cellular and HSV-1 factors associated with Rep proteins and thus potentially recruited within AAV replication compartments provides the basis to understand how AAV adapts its replication strategy to the nuclear environment induced by the helper virus.
Analysis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Genotypic Lineage Distribution in Chile and Neighboring Countries
TLDR
Global analysis of MTB lineage distribution in Chile versus neighboring countries showed that evolutionary recent lineages (LAM, T and Haarlem) accounted together for 88.2% of isolates in Chile, a pattern which mirrored MTB dynasty distribution in neighboring countries.
Nuclear Functions of Nucleolin through Global Proteomics and Interactomic Approaches.
TLDR
This study describes the first nuclear interactome of human NCL and provides the basis for further understanding the mechanisms underlying the essential functions of this nucleolar protein.
Geographical Distribution of Genetic Variants and Lineages of SARS-CoV-2 in Chile
TLDR
This work presents the occurrence of genetic variants and lineages of SARS-CoV-2 in Chile during March to April 2020 and revealed a predominance of variant D614G like in Europe and the USA and the major presence of lineage B.
Genetic variability of human papillomavirus type 66 L1 gene among women presenting for cervical cancer screening in Chile
TLDR
The results of this research suggest that the neutralizing epitopes of HPV-66 are antigenically different compared to HPV-16 and HPV-18, and show the need to perform new structural and immunological studies on HPV- 66 L1 protein to evaluate the cross-protection conferred by current HPV vaccines.
[Genetic characterization of Listeria monocytogenes strains isolated during 2007-2014 in Chile].
TLDR
A great genetic variability was observed in the strains of L. monocytogenes analyzed, being predominant the ST1 and ST2, both belonging to Lineage I.
