Studie zum Östlichen Pferdeenzephalitis-Virus entdeckt Täuschungsmolekül, das vor tödlichen Gehirninfektionen schützt

A study of atomic-level detail on how the Eastern equine encephalitis virus binds to a key receptor and enters cells also led to the discovery of a decoy molecule that protects mice from the potentially lethal brain infection.

The study, conducted by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, was published on January 3 in the journal Cell. By improving the understanding of the complex molecular interactions between viral proteins and their receptors on animal cells, the results provide a foundation for treatments and vaccines against viral infections.
