Researchers report that while the spike protein and RNA polymerase proteins have stabilised, other regions of the SARS-CoV-2 genome are becoming increasingly variable.
The team used cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to show how the 10E8 antibody interacts with the HIV’s fusion protein to neutralise the virus.
An artificial intelligence platform available online has been designed to help researchers track the genetics of SARS-CoV-2 as it moves from person to person.
Learn how fragment-based drug discovery improves hit rates and delivers higher-value targets using various biophysical methods.
Host pathways in coronavirus replication and COVID-19 pre-clinical drug target identification using proteomic and chemoinformatic analysis
The identification of host dependency factors mediating virus infection may provide key insights into effective molecular targets for developing broadly acting antiviral therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2 and other deadly coronavirus strains. Here, Joseph Steward highlights key findings of recent research.
A new study has revealed how bacterial immune systems can be harmful for their hosts and why they are not found in all bacteria.
A new study has developed a deep learning approach that analyses protein interactions, which could improve the design of drugs in the future.
Researchers have produced a mathematical framework enabling quick assessment of how different parameters control interactions between molecules with multiple binding sites.
Researchers have found that PGE2, a signalling molecule involved in inflammation, promotes colorectal cancer progression through a microRNA and targeting that microRNA could have therapeutic potential.
As technology advances and scientific research progresses at a rapid pace, data is being generated in ever-larger quantities. Even with the forward strides in technology and advances in data processing, a common problem widely acknowledged by the scientific community is that of reproducibility. In this article, Matjaz Hren discusses the…
A new study analysing both the entire set of genes and all the proteins produced by colon cancer tissues has revealed a more comprehensive view of the tumour.
The team used techniques used by physicists along with highly specialised equipment to investigate deep into the bacterial membrane...
An online compound library consisting of the structure of over a billion molecules could be the future of drug discovery...
Researchers have identified a tiny hidden pocket on the NMDA receptor that could be targeted to treat strokes and seizures...
