Shady Younis discussed this somewhat disappointing finding during a Department  retreat with one of his PhD fellows, Wael Kamel, who did his PhD studies on the biology of adenovirus. This led to a suggestion to try to challenge the cells lacking ZC3H11A  with a virus infection. To their surprise it turned out that there was a drastic reduction of  the growth of adenovirus in cells lacking ZC3H11A compared with cells expressing this  protein. This serendipitous discovery is an excellent example of how a good scientific  environment can inspire scientists to collaborative efforts that may lead to important  scientific discoveries. Citation  ART works by keeping the level of HIV in your body low lets your immune system recover and stay strong. Keeping your viral load low also helps to prevent HIV being passed on.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
