1. Adenovirus ichosaedral nucleocapsid structure

Adenovirus infections most commonly cause illness of the respiratory system; however, depending on the infecting serotype, they may also cause various other illnesses and presentations. Symptoms of respiratory illness caused by adenovirus infection range from the common cold syndrome to pneumonia, croup, and bronchitis. Antigen detection, polymerase chain reaction assay, virus isolation, and serologycan be used to identify adenovirus infections. Most infections are mild and require no therapy or only symptomatic treatment. Because there is no virus-specific therapy, serious adenovirus illness can be managed only by treating symptoms and complications of the infection.

3. Crystal structure of human insulin degrading enzyme (IDE) in complex with Beta amyloid 1-42 (blue).

IDE cleaves multiple short polypeptides that vary considerably in sequence. Considerable interest in IDE has been stimulated due to the discovery that IDE can degrade beta amyloid, a peptide implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. More info 

4. Repression of Interferon response elements by NF-κβ p50. 

Computer model showing a molecule of the p50 homodimer of Nuclear factor kappa beta (NF-κβ, green) bound to the DNA interferon regulatory factor (IRF) recognition sequence on a strand of DNA (orange). IRF-3 (white and blue) is bound to an alternative DNA recognition site. NF-κβ is a protein complex that controls the transcription of DNA. IRFs are proteins that regulate the transcription of interferons. Incorrect regulation of NF-κB has been linked to cancer, inflammatory and autoimmune diseasesseptic shock, viral infection, and improper immune development.
