Can it be a gene (that is piece of DNA, sequence) that encodes for certain receptor? In practical terms it will mean that cell uses that exact DNA code to produce named receptor. And if you create, say, yeast carrying plasmid with that sequence, that yeast will be able to produce that receptor molecule, even though wild-type yeast couldn't. So it is the ...

Proline is replaced by Glutamic acid. Pro16 indicated a position on the protein.

You are looking at a protein here, which is mutated in the higher host specificity, so glucose is not involved here. What is written here are the amino acids in the three-letter-code, the notation Pro→Glu means that Proline (Pro) is replaced by Glutamic acid (Glu). The notation Pro16 means the proline on amino acid position 16 in the protein. You often find ...

Studies show semen does mount a considerable immune response in the female mucosa, however: Seminal plasma redirects the differentiation of human dendritic cells (DCs) toward a regulatory profile. By promoting a tolerogenic profile in DCs, seminal plasma might favor fertility, but might also compromise the capacity of the receptive partner to mount an ...

I suppose it'll depend on the status of Ago, Dicer, RdRP, Drosha, etc (in the case of cancers). The general response to long dsRNA, from a natural standpoint, is the production and amplification of siRNA meant to completely degrade viral dsRNA. In this manner you'd have an upregulation of those pathways as it details here.
