Each monomer consists of three important subdomains called the fusion subdomain, the receptor binding subdomain, and the vestigial esterase subdomain. Each has an important function in a virus infection. This project hopes to provide info for future research into preventing and perhaps curing influenza. Background Viruses use simple mechanisms to attack and infect their hosts. One step in a virus attack is the binding of the virus to the host cell.
These results present evidence for the requirement of TLR7 for single stranded RNA viruses and TLR9 for non-methylated CpG bacteria DNA to induced cellular effects. Conversely, further results provide evidence that support the role for TLR7 and TLR9 to trigger vesicular stomatitis viruses and CpG bacteria DNA mediated signaling transduction resulting in the induction of the interferon response .

IFN and IL-12 level were determined from culture supernatant by ELISA Lund, J.M.et al Conclusion: In justification with the previous study on TLR9 recognition of CpG DNA and initiating an innate immune system, Lund, J.M. et al have demonstrated that, together, TLR7 and TLR9 likely form a functional subgroup within the TLR family that recognize pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMPS) in endosomal compartment.
Additional function is anchoring side for natural CMV gB and gH glycoproteins that can be used for antibody response to make vaccine more effective and induce innate immune response. pp65, pp71, pp150, pp28 derived from CMV will also be part of the liposome (inside it). In cytoplasm these proteins will be recognized as foreign ones and degraded, cleaved to be presented on MHCI triggering CD8+. INF-γ has a variety of functions including viral replication inhibition and increase in Ag processing and presentation by MHCI, while INF type I (α/β) are able to stimulate cross-priming in DС (Le Bon et al., 2003).

T-cell produce cell surface- bound receptor protein called T-cell receptor. These classes of protein able to recognized great diverse invader molecule then starts a cascade event to destruct the invader. Antibody diversity is generated by the rearrangement of variable region gene segments during the differentiation of the antibody- producing cells by a series of sequence-specific DNA rearrangement (Watson, Baker, Bell, Gann, Levine, & Losick, 2008). Antibodies are constructed of two copies each of a light chain and a heavy chain. The antigen binding site is constructed from VL and VH domains of the antibody molecule whereby sequence in this region is highly variable (Watson et al., 2008)).

Further research was done to see if HIV infection produces retroviral cDNA in the cytoplasm, if cGAS was activated when infected with HEK293T cells with HIV-GFP. In the cytosol purified cGAS proteins were prepared for ATP and GTP. The results show that cytosolic extracts from HIV infected cells did stimulate cGAS.

CRISPR is a microbial nuclease mechanism involved in defense against invading phages and plasmids. The Loci of CRISPR in bacteria and viral hosts contain a combination of CRISPR-associated (Cas) genes and non-coding RNA elements capable of programming the specificity of the CRISPR-mediated nucleic acid cleavage. CRISPR is based on the protein CRISPR associated protein Cas, which bacteria and archaea wield as a tool to sever predatory bacteriophage's ( and viruses) DNA. A breakthrough for the basic understanding of CRISPR defense mechanism was achieved by a group of researchers led by Barrangou, who showed that Streptococcus thermophilus can acquire some form of resistance against a bacteriophage by integrating a genome fragment of an infectious virus into its CRISPR locus (Richter et al 2013). CRISPR systems arm bacteria and archaea with a sequence-specific heritable ‘adaptive immune system’ that has a genetic memory of previous genetic invasion.
Activated lymphocytes will then carried out their effectors functions; including cytokine production, cytotoxicity, and antibody synthesis. Adaptive immune responses can sub-divide into cell-mediated immunity (helper T cells secrete cytokine or/and soluble factors to mediate the immune responses; cytotoxic T cells release lymphotoxin which lyses target cell) and humoral immunity (B cells will differentiate into plasma and secrete antibodies).

Th1 cells secrete IFN-γ, and IL-2 which will promote the macrophage activation, CTL formation, and antibody-dependent cell mediated cytotoxicity. Th2 cells, on the other hand, produce IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, and monitor the IgG1 and IgE isotype switching and mucosal immunity, stimulation of mast cells and eosinophils growth, and IgA synthesis.
Apoptosis is a form of cell death which is an essential process for growth and development of multi cellular organism and removes damaged cells to prevent inflammation (Madeo, Frohlich et al. 1997). In addition, apoptosis can be morphologically characterized by cell shrinkage, chromatin condensation, and formation of apoptotic complex (Madeo, Frohlich et al. 1997,Qi, Kim, et al. 2013).The main biochemical characteristics of apoptosis include caspase activation and DNA fragmentation (Madeo, Frohlich et al.
