Single mutation gives virus new target

Single mutation gives virus new target Single switch/ The binding sites on the surface of the of the BK polyomavirus, called capsomers, each have five monomers. Scientists found that changing just one amino acid in these monomers caused the virus to bind to an entirely different receptor on targeted cells than before. Credit: Atwood lab/Brown University In a new study […]
