Viral pathogenesis, a persistent challenge to mankind, often relies on the stability of symmetric, higher-ordered protein assemblies. Dr. Sengupta's research group has shown that it is possible to exploit allosteric effects to disrupt the underlying symmetry and interfacial stability of a key, assembly protein (NS1) involved in ZIKV replication. The results have important ramifications in limiting the ZIKV replication pathway, and thereby in anti-viral therapeutic design.
