Mutations in the canine parvovirus capsid make it more infectious

Macchess Icon

Canine parvovirus (CPV) is closely related to the feline panleukopenia virus (FPV), also a parvovirus, that infects domestic cats and some non-domestic carnivores.

Bacterial proteins co-opt host cell skeletal elements to spread infection

Rickettsia bacteria are transmitted by the bites of infected ticks and other arthropods, and cause diseases such as typhus and spotted fever.

Electrostatic interactions help an enzyme do its job
