    Restoring natural immunity against cancers

    Scientists have successfully increased the infiltration of immune cells into tumors, thus inducing the immune system to block tumor growth. They show that, in combination with existing immunotherapies, this process efficiently destroys cancer cells.

    A microbial virus from extreme environment opens doors to new therapeutical strategies

    Following their research on virus SIRV2, a virus found to survive in extreme environments (very hot and acidic), researchers from the University of Washington, the University of Virginia and the Institut Pasteur have discovered what appears to be a basic mechanism of resistance to heat, dehydratation and ultraviolet radiation. This finding could potentially lead to many applications, including the development of new ways to package DNA for gene therapy.

    The native capsid of a retrovirus is observed for the first time ever at the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo

    Researchers from the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo, in collaboration with the Uruguayan Medical School, obtained for the first time ever high-resolution images of the native capsid protein of the Bovine Leukemia Virus (BLV). These observations represent a major progress in understanding retrovirus biology, opening new avenues towards the development of antiretroviral therapies.

    Dogma challenged: the genetic determination of testis or ovary is conserved through evolution

    In animals, sexual reproduction is almost universal but the mechanisms that determine the choice between forming a testis or ovary are highly diverse. Researchers from the Institut Pasteur and the University of Minnesota have recently proven that the genetic determination of testis or ovary has been conserved through evolution, thanks to a study of the gene DMRT1.
