‘N PROTEIN’ of Coronavirus Plays Critical Role In Viral Transmission (E)

According to a new research, the N-protein of the SARS-CoV-2 plays an important role in increasing the infectivity of the virus. The study conducted by IISER Bhopal researchers demonstrates that in addition to the spike protein, a study of other viral proteins, ’particularly the N protein’ is also necessary to fully understand the COVID-19 viral infection. These findings by Indian researchers may help in developing better therapeutic drugs, antibodies and entry inhibitors to fight against the infection.
