Congratulations Mei for his findings published in PNAS! A wonderful collaborative work on elucidating how SARS-CoV-2 hijacks Nup98 to antagonize interferon signaling!
Oct. 24, 2020—We previously revealed the mechanism of how vesicular stomatitis virus hijacks Nup98 to block host gene expression. Our most recent work published in PNAS shows that SARS-CoV-2 utilizes a similar strategy to target Nup98 in order to block interferon signaling.
Thanks to Danielle Breezy at WKRN News 2 for the wonderful report and thanks to VICC and ACS colleagues and ResearchHERs Ambassadors!!!
