"The setting of telling myths is different from that of Chinese whispers," Witzel says. "Such myths are told in a formal, ritual, sometimes secret setting. Their telling is also different from that of stories for the amusement of children. Frequently myths are transmitted in a formal way from teacher to student, for example from shaman to apprentice."
...Heitman, M D , Ph D , senior study author and professor and chair of molecular genetics and microbiology at Duke University School of Medicine. "A classic, Mendelian mutation is a more permanent binding decision. These epimutations are reversible. If conditions change, it is easier to revert to the way things were."
"This is a proof of principle that this class of compounds can work against additional virus classes" Knipe said
"It could be like the discovery of other molecular phenomena like introns or microRNAs, where it all began with just one example," said Heitman. "We think this discovery may turn outout to be generalized fairly quickly."
