Snapshot of chikungunya could lead to drugs, vaccines for viral arthritis

Washington University in St. Louis

A team at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has snapped high-resolution pictures of chikungunya virus latched onto a protein found on the surface of cells in the joints. The structures, published May 9 in the journal Cell, shows in atomic-level detail how the virus and cell-surface protein fit together – data that promises to accelerate efforts to design drugs and vaccines to prevent or treat arthritis caused by chikungunya or related viruses.
