Using Viruses to Find the Cellular Achilles Heel

Melanie Ott

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—January 22, 2015­—A study from researchers at the Gladstone Institutes has exposed new battle tactics employed by the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Published in the January 22 issue of Molecular Cell, the investigators created full protein interaction maps—interactomes—of where the virus comes into contact with the host proteins during the course of infection. Through these protein interactions, the scientists not only gained insight into the virus, they also uncovered a common set of host proteins that are targeted by various infections. Their results suggest that these proteins and the cellular processes they govern are the most crucial—in effect, the collective Achilles heel—for both the human body and its viral invaders.

Gladstone Scientists Link Hepatitis C Virus Infection to Fat Enzyme in Liver Cells

Melanie Ott

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—October 10, 2010—Scientists at the Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology (GIVI) have found that an enzyme associated with the storage of fat in the liver is required for the infectious activity of the hepatitis C virus (HCV). This discovery may offer a new strategy for treating the infection.
