A JNU team led by Prof. Wang Yifei of JNU's College of Life Science and Technology has published a paper in the Journal of Infection (IF=38.637), the official journal of the British Infection Association, which ranks fourth among 94 such journals, according to data collected in the Journal Citation Reports. The paper is titled MAMDC2, a gene highly expressed in microglia in experimental models of Alzheimer's Disease, positively regulates the innate antiviral response during neurotropic virus infection. It uncovers the function of MAMDC2 in the innate antiviral response in microglia during neurotropic virus infection, revealing a potential mechanism linking HSV-1 and AD.
