Researchers have used computer simulations to model how the SARS-CoV-2 fusion peptide interacts with and penetrates the cell membrane.
Researchers have developed a computer modelling programme that can produce genetic circuits for cellular engineering.
The N439K mutation improves the interaction between SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein and the viral receptor ACE2 and eludes antibody-mediated immunity, say investigators.
A single change to the structure of bacterial ribosomes prevents macrolide antibiotics from binding and killing the bacteria, according to a study.
Researchers have developed a new technique that that could one day enable us to grow fully functional human organs in the laboratory.
Results of a recent study by researchers at the University of Bristol indicate neuropilin-1 is an important host factor for SARS-CoV-2 infection. The team suggests that blocking neuropilin-1 may be a valuable therapeutic intervention in the treatment of COVID-19. Nikki Withers spoke to one of the study’s lead investigators, Dr…
A team has revealed how SARS-CoV-2 infects cells, suggesting that targeting its RNA with drugs would stop the virus replicating.
Using supercomputer stimulations researchers reveal that the structural stability of the Ebola nucleocapsid is depended on the presence of RNA and interactions with charged ions.
Researchers have found that the surface of SARS-CoV-2 can take on at least 10 different structural states when in contact with ACE2.
A new interactive map of the surface of SARS-CoV-2, featuring the Spike, Envelope and Membrane proteins, has been released for researchers to use.
Having resolved the structure of psychedelic drugs bound to the 5-HT2A serotonin receptor researchers are now developing new therapeutic drugs.
Conspiracy theories about COVID-19 have been spreading since the early days of the outbreak. But how do we know whether a biological entity is artificially made or has occurred naturally? Marc Baiget Francesch explores the capabilities of current scientific approaches in terms of virus engineering and how this applies to…
Researchers observed new structures of alpha-synuclein aggregates in their study exploring how the presence of cell membrane phospholipids impacts protein aggregation.
Researchers have modified the COVID-19 Spike protein for use in vaccines, which produces up to 10 times more protein than that of an earlier synthetic versions.
