Schutz aus unerwarteter Quelle

Description

Contrary to common belief, not all viruses are harmful to their hosts. Sometimes viruses can even protect their hosts from infection by other viruses. Scientists at the Max-Planck-Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg and their collaborators have now demonstrated that this is the case for so-called endogenous virophages: small DNA viruses that are mostly found inserted into the genomes of single-cell eukaryotes – organisms whose cells have a membrane-bound nucleus. Moreover, the scientists show that virophages are highly specific towards giant viruses, focusing on the CroV type in the present study.

In a new paper published in PNAS at the beginning of March, Anna Koslová, Matthias Fischer and colleagues from the Max-Planck-Institute for Medical Research and Thomas Hackl from the University of Groningen report that endogenous virophages in the marine zooplankter Cafeteria burkhardae are reactivated when their hosts encounter a giant virus. In their study, they analyzed reactivation towards the lytic giant virus CroV.
