HIV infection hijacks intracellular highways
from Northwestern University via Medical Xpress
A Northwestern Medicine study found that HIV uses proteins called diaphanous-related formins (DRFs) to hijack the cytoskeleton of healthy cells, findings that deepen the understanding of HIV infection and present a potential therapeutic target. The paper was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and the lead author was Michael Delaney, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of senior author Mojgan Naghavi, Ph.D., associate professor of microbiology-immunology.
