Viruses utilize numerous mechanisms to counteract the host's immune response. Interferon production is a major component of the host antiviral response. Many viruses, therefore, produce proteins or RNA molecules that inhibit interferon-induced signal transduction pathways and their associated antiviral effects. Surprisingly, some viruses directly induce(More)
In Hydra, head regeneration and bud formation appear to be very similar processes. The fact that there are genes whose expression is specific for one of the two processes suggests that they do not have identical molecular bases. We analyzed the signal transduction pathways regulating bud development using inhibitors of protein kinase C, Src, PI3K and ERK.(More)
