These papers were selected from multiple disciplines from the Faculty of 1000, a Web-based literature awareness tool Roeth et al., "HIV-1 Nef disrupts MHC-I trafficking by recruiting AP-1 to the MHC-I cytoplasmic tail." J Cell Biol, 167:903–13, Dec. 6, 2004.This study defines a novel pathway by which immune evasion protein Nef of HIV-1 traffics MHC-I proteins in T cells from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to the lysosome for degradation. Indeed, the authors


How bacteria fight antibiotics

By | August 13, 2004

Researchers report in two separate papers in Science this week on novel methods used by bacteria to avoid being killed by antibiotics. In one study, scientists at the Rockefeller University report that the bacterial cells known as persisters, which tolerate but do not become resistant to antibiotics, preexist in a population and that their random switching between normal and slow-growing persister states enables them to escape antibiotic killing. And in an accompanying paper, Stanford University
