Hamburg / Grenoble, December 2, 2021 - Research groups from the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine, EMBL* Grenoble and the laboratory of Kay Grünewald from HPI / UHH at CSSB** have studied nine structures of an essential Lassa virus protein in different functional states. The protein is necessary for virus replication and thus provides excellent targets for antiviral agents. The results have now been published in the journal Nature Communications.
