Catch a Virus by Its Tail

Harvard Medical School

Research uncovers key mechanism that allows some of the deadliest human RNA viruses to orchestrate the precise copying of the individual pieces of their viral genome and replicate. Research reveals that the tail end of a virus’s RNA plays a key role in ensuring each segment of the viral genome is copied in the correct amount. Experiments show the viral replication machinery latches onto the 5' end of the virus’s RNA strand, a move that activates the enzyme to start copying at the opposite end of a specific segment. The findings identify new targets to inhibit viral replication and may inform the development of a novel class of antiviral drugs.
