medical animation of Bacterial viruses are called phages or bacteriophages. They only attack bacteria; Phages stick to bacteria with their leg-like fibres, which triggers their shaft to ram a needle into the bacterial hull. This punctures the bacterial envelope and injects the genetic material. Phage components are assembled within the cell before it ruptures to release a new wave of phages – killing further bacteria. Researchers immediately realised phages could help to fight bacterial infections.

Going of immune or radiation therapies to the intake of cytotoxic ingrediences like Taxol or Doxorubicin by interfering at DNA synthesis and promote further mutations.
medical illustration of Factor VIII (FVIII) is an essential blood-clotting protein, also known as anti-hemophilic factor (AHF). In humans, factor VIII is encoded by the F8 gene. Mutations in this gene result in hemophilia A, a recessive X-linked coagulation disorder. Factor VIII is produced in liver cells and endothelial cells. This protein circulates in the bloodstream in an inactive form, bound to another molecule called von Willebrand factor, until an injury that damages blood vessels occurs.
medical animation of Ras is an important signalling integrator downstream of several receptor tyrosine kinases. It’s activity is tightly controlled in all eukaryotic cells, as it determines the rate of proliferation and differentiation. Consequently, aberrant ras activation, either too little or too much might cause severe diseases, including cancer, inflammatory and immunological disorders. In fact in a third of all human cancers one of the three RAS genes is mutated, where they act as prototypic oncogenes.
