How Zika Virus Proteins Inhibit Brain Development

This 2006 photograph depicts a female Aedes aegypti mosquito, the species of mosquito primarily responsible for the spread of the Zika virus disease to people. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis, or red eyes. The illness is usually mild, with symptoms lasting for several days to a week after being bitten by an infected mosquito. Credit: Centers for Disease Control

Bioactive Agents Improve Synthetic Bone Substitutes

News

Synthetic bone substitutes are promising materials for bone defect repair, but their efficacy can be substantially improved by bioactive agents such as growth factors. In a new study, researchers have modified beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) with increasing quantities of bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) derived from E. coli and shown improved bone healing.
