Induction of MxA Gene Expression by Influenza A Virus Requires Type I or Type III Interferon Signaling
MxA is a unique marker for the detection of type I and type III IFN activity during virus infections and IFN therapy, and cannot be triggered directly by virus infection.

SARS-CoV has the ability to circumvent both the innate and the adaptive immune systems, as well as to induce a delayed activation of IFN-alpha expression.
Evidence for the existence of two new members of the family Chlamydiaceae and proposal of Chlamydia avium sp. nov. and Chlamydia gallinacea sp. nov.
A Novel Cytotoxin from Clostridium difficileSerogroup F Is a Functional Hybrid between Two Other Large Clostridial Cytotoxins*
The novel hybrid toxin will broaden the utility of the LCTs for clarifying the functions of several small GTPases, now including also R-Ras, as well as considerably more potent cytotoxins than TcsL-1522.

TaqMan PCR is an excellent alternative to conventional nested PCR assays for the rapid detection of HSV-1, HSV -2, and VZV in clinical samples and appears to be less expensive than nested PCR Assays due to less hands-on time.
