Is 746 A Good Credit Score – TWiV 746: Encephalitis viruses dine on caveolae


Is 746 A Good Credit Score – How to Choose

Team TWiV explains how alphaviruses like Western equine encephalitis virus cross into the brain from capillaries by caveolin-mediated transcytosis, and reveal scientists’ incentives and attitudes towards public communication.

– Who Am I? –

I’m Vincent Racaniello, Earth’s Virology Professor.

I’m also a professor of virology at Columbia University in New York. I’ve been doing research on viruses since 1976, and teaching virology in classrooms and online since 1999. On this YouTube channel I share videos of my lectures, podcasts, and more.

New videos are uploaded every Thursday and Sunday mornings.

    YO VINNY….Professions that cannot regulate themselves deserve to get regulated by others, and this would seem to be the future that political virologists are choosing for themselves.

    Dixon: your're right about the speed of light time delay. Ingenuity is 'aware' of its movements in 3-d space with accelerometers, and other sensors. NASA send instructions to take off and rise to (z) altitude, then perhaps to move horozontally to somewhere else, then for safety the first few flights have gone back over the take-off site before landing, because they know it's flat enough. The whole thing is managed by Ingenuity's automatic stability as far as I know, and Perseverence only handles the radio comms to receive instructions and send back pictures.
    There's talk Ingenuity is so good, it'll be helping Perseverance to explore for a few weeks.
    TWiV: It's viral 🙂

    Ha! (~34:20 Pasta-man vibrations they are positive.) For a TWiV like this — I run 2 tabs, one with the discussion & the other with paper open so I can pause discussion & look at the figures, read the text. I suspect there are others who do this. Very helpful to me.

    My son is taking a course for people who missed out on University entrance etc. The course is of many aspects but included some cog. psych and also something about the brain. So I found this connected up with that as this BBB is at the very fine level of the neurons and blood vessels. As I watch these things I always look things up, I had picked up what asctrocytes were etc. The diagrams though are beautiful, fascinating. Nothing like the images of real brains the Psych lecturer showed some times. But it reminded me that I worked in a freezing works quite a lot of seasons in the offal dept and the slaughter house. Actually my own father had designed or re-designed the more or less automated Beef House. It reminded me also I used to scoop out sheep's brains and package them. Strangely freezing works esp. here in NZ were very clean places. I still eat meat heartily (and we also processed hearts, brains, kidneys, livers and "sweet meats". Once a mate and I stole a liver and ate liver for about a week. It was crazy. It left me in "two minds" though. I don't like killing animals but accept it is a part of life. Still, I know that Coetzee and others write about the issue of the treatment of animals. Meanwhile I still love steak and kidney pies, but have never eaten brains. I once ate snails at a French restaurant here in Auckland. I suppose, re the BBB that the viri etc that get in affect the meninges, but from diagrams on line it looks as though HIV can affect Scwhann cells and others on the axons etc. Infections must be hard to treat. I notice the arboviruses vary, if they affect the brain, in their severity of encephalitis. Interesting stuff but most of this stuff out of my reach. Be better if I knew more, need more time to study some of these things, but want to do other things. Very interesting though….

    Brain viruses are interesting. I'm glad you reviewed this paper, thanks.

    If T-Cells can go through cells then how does the syncytiotrophoblast still work? I'm skeptical, but I'm not educated on the topic.

    Those academics like glory and adore cant purified a virus – wonder why is so difficult In Germany is reward €225k for sombody who can isolate and purified maybe is worth for them or not?
