New papillomaviruses identified in Malayan and Chinese pangolins

Papillomaviruses are non-enveloped, double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) viruses with a circular genome. Infection with these viruses can lead to several clinical symptoms ranging from subclinical, cutaneous and mucosal warts to cancerous lesions in the vertebrate host. A new study published in the journal Biological letters identifies two new lineages of papillomaviruses by genome data mining of …

Scientists have identified a new epitope at the furin cleavage site of the SARS-CoV-2 spike

Scientists have identified an immunogenic epitope at the furin cleavage site of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that induces a robust antibody response in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In his study published in the journal eBiomedicine, researchers also identified a monoclonal antibody that binds to this epitope and protects mice from …
