Poxviruses have gene to 'blind' host cells' DNA sensors
from Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News
If security signs were posted inside the cell, they wouldn’t display images of video cameras. Instead, they might warn would-be intruders — poxviruses, for instance — of DNA sensors. Unfortunately, such signs wouldn’t deter poxviruses, which brazenly replicate their large genomes in the cytosol while somehow remaining unseen.
