The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) matrix protein, p17, forms the outer shell of the core of the virus, lining the inner surface of the viral membrane. The protein has several key functions. It orchestrates viral assembly via targeting signals that direct the gag precursor polyprotein, p55, to the host cell membrane and it interacts with the(More)
Internalization of obligate intracellular bacteria belonging to the genus Rickettsia by eukaryotic cells requires participation of both the parasitized host and the microorganism. The term "induced phagocytosis" has been used specifically to describe the entry of Rickettsia prowazekii, although a similar mechanism is likely for R. rickettsii. A role for a(More)
The Institute of Medicine has formed a Committee on Improving Quality in Long-Term Care, which is examining the legislative and quality-of-care impact that the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 (OBRA '87) had on long-term care. The American Psychiatric Association and the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry were asked to provide written(More)
Host factors determining the outcome of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection within neurons are poorly understood. This paper aims to identify regional differences in the behaviour of HSV-1 within the nervous system as an approach to investigating the role of the host environment in determining the outcome of infection. We describe a mouse model of(More)
In this review we have tried to outline some of the recent experimental data which has contributed to our understanding the neurobiology of herpesviruses. We have attempted to draw together the threads of several different but related disciplines, i.e. virology, immunology, neurobiology and cell biology, to demonstrate how all are inextricably linked and(More)
New legislation based on provisions of traditional Jewish law regarding respect for the dead is inhibiting the performance of autopsies and organ transplants in Israel. The number of autopsies has declined sharply as a result of the 1981 Anatomy and Pathology Law, which requires the approval of the next of kin, in addition to approval by three physicians(More)
