During human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) maturation, three different forms of nucleocapsid (NC) protein-NCp15 (p9 + p6), NCp9 (p7 + SP2) and NCp7-appear successively. A mutant virus expressing NCp15 shows greatly reduced infectivity. Mature NCp7 is a chaperone protein

Simple homocyclic aromatic compounds are extremely abundant in the environment and are derived largely from lignin. Such compounds may enter anaerobic environments and several groups of bacteria, exhibiting diverse energy-yielding mechanisms, have evolved the capacity to overcome the thermodynamic stability

Epidemiological data show that the incidence of carcinomas in humans is highly dependent on age. However, the initial steps of the age-related molecular oncogenic processes by which the switch towards the neoplastic state occurs remain poorly understood, mostly due to
