New SARS-like virus is poised to infect humans

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

The new virus, known as WIV1-CoV, directly binds to the same human receptor as the SARS strain that infected thousands in 2002 (Chapel Hill, N.C. - March 14, 2016) - A SARS-like virus found in Chinese horseshoe bats may be poised to...

Giant fullerene system inhibits the infection by an artificial Ebola virus

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Using an artificial Ebola virus model, a medical researchers have demonstrated how a supermolecule -- constituted by 13 fullerenes -- has been able of inhibiting the virus infection by blocking a receptor implied in its expansion. T...

A giant fullerene system inhibits the infection by an artificial Ebola virus

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

Different studies have demonstrated that the ebola virus infection process starts when the virus reaches the cellular DC-SIGN receptor to infect the dendritic cells (of the immune system). European researchers have designed a "giant...

Receptor for Ebola virus identified

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Researchers have identified a cellular protein that acts as a receptor for Ebola virus and Marburg virus. Furthermore, the team showed that an antibody, which binds to the receptor protein, is able to block infection by both viruses...

Frizzled proteins are colonic epithelial receptors for C. difficile toxin B

Academics : Nature AOP

Here, a genome-wide CRISPR–Cas9 screen is used to identify the Wnt receptors frizzled as physiologically relevant Clostridium difficile toxin B receptors, providing new therapeutic targets for treating C. difficile infections.
