19:00 EST 3 Dec 2019 | AAAS

(University of Jyväskylä - Jyväskylän yliopisto) It has long been suggested that a cell protease could take part in enterovirus infection. However, the identity of such proteases have remained unknown. The work performed in the University of Jyväskylä shows, for the first time, that host cell calpain proteases can process enterovirus polyprotein in vitro. The research was published in Viruses scientific journal in November 2019.
