These include the development of mechanisms to inhibit fusion between the virus envelope
and the cell membrane.
Genetic diversity and positive selection analysis of classical swine fever virus envelope
protein gene E2 in east China under C-strain vaccination.
A ligand binding pocket in the dengue virus envelope
Characterization of a dengue type-specific epitope on dengue 3 virus envelope
protein domain III.
Here, we proposed the use of dengue virus envelope
(E) glycoprotein as a target to search for peptides that could interfere with the first step of the infection process.
TIM1 binds to phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), a membrane lipid present in the Zika virus envelope
that is also present in dengue, West Nile and Ebola.
"We found that changing a single amino acid in the envelope coat protein of naturally occurring HIV strains led to dramatic differences in the ability of SHIVs to infect monkeys, while at the same time retaining the native-like features of the virus envelope
and its interaction with the human immune system," Shaw said.
M cell-targeting ligand and consensus dengue virus envelope
protein domain III fusion protein production in transgenic rice calli.
"By learning and validating data from numerous three-dimensional structures of interacting antibody and protein complexes, the researchers gained valuable insights that enabled them to redesign a dengue virus envelope
antibody to improve its binding by an astounding 450-fold," Vasudevan said.
The principal ingredient of bee venom, melittin, 'drills' a hole in the virus envelope
, and disables it by essentially skinning it alive.
