2019-nCoV: Structure, Characteristics of Key Potential Therapy Target Determined

April 17, 2020

This article by Mark S. Lesney and published by MDedge, 2020, highlights the news that researchers have identified the structure of a spike protein that could turn out to be a potential vaccine target for the 2019-nCoV that causes COVID-19. The research further suggests that future antibody isolation and therapeutic design efforts will benefit from specifically using 2019-nCoV spike proteins as probes.
