A better understanding of the way sugar units are attached to the surface proteins of cancer cells may help to improve targeted cancer treatments, A*STAR scientists say.
A*STAR researchers have identified specific sites in the surface protein of influenza viruses that allow the pathogen to adapt to different host organisms.
Researchers at A*STAR have combined two superresolution microscopy techniques to observe structural protein dynamics inside cells.
Short- and long-range interactions that give structure to virus genomes also influence virus replication and infectiousness.
