HTLV-1 HBZ Protein Resides Exclusively in the Cytoplasm of Infected Cells in Asymptomatic Carriers and HAM/TSP Patients

In conclusion, we believe that the data presented in this research add new relevant information for a better definition of the pathological states associated with HTLV-1 infection, particularly in relation to the distinct subcellular expression of HBZ in the different pathological contests and related pathologies. Whether HBZ cytoplasmic and nuclear localization in the natural history of HTLV-1 infection represents a marker of infection or is part of the mechanism governing the evolution toward HAM/TSP or ATL is the challenge for future investigation.

SAN FRANCISCO - Monsanto Co. on Sept. 30 filed a brief in California appellate court contending that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, is not likely to cause cancer and, therefore, Roundup would be "misbranded" if it included a cancer warning (DeWayne Johnson v. Monsanto Company, Nos. A155940 and A156706, Calif. App, 1st Dist.).
