Cellular calpain proteases can cleave the enteroviral polyprotein
(University of Jyv ä skyl ä - Jyv ä skyl ä n yliopisto) Enteroviruses can cause severe diseases such as encephalitis or myocarditis, and have been associated with chronic diseases such as type 1 diabetes. In her dissertation at the University of Jyvaskyla M.Sc Mira Laajala focuses on viral and host cell factors that promote the infection of enterovirus B species after cell entry. The research showed that in addition to enteroviral proteases, cellular calpain proteases can cleave the enteroviral polyprotein. The information may possibly be used in antiviral development.

VuilleumierAbstractIt is debated whether the amygdala is critical for the emotional modulation of attention. While some studies show reduced attentional benefits for emotional stimuli in amygdala-damaged patients, others report preserved emotional effects. Various factors may account for these discrepant findings, including the temporal onset of the lesion, the completeness and severity of tissue damage, or the extent of neural plasticity and compensatory mechanisms, among ot...
