Cellular glycan modification by B3GAT1 broadly restricts influenza virus infection.

Journal Article Nat Commun · October 29, 2022 Communicable respiratory viral infections pose both epidemic and pandemic threats and broad-spectrum antiviral strategies could improve preparedness for these events. To discover host antiviral restriction factors that may act as suitable targets for the d ... Full text Link to item Cite

Host protein kinases required for SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid phosphorylation and viral replication.

Journal Article Sci Signal · October 25, 2022 Multiple coronaviruses have emerged independently in the past 20 years that cause lethal human diseases. Although vaccine development targeting these viruses has been accelerated substantially, there remain patients requiring treatment who cannot be vaccin ... Full text Open Access Link to item Cite

From high-throughput to therapeutic: host-directed interventions against influenza viruses.

Journal Article Curr Opin Virol · April 2022 Influenza viruses are simultaneously supported and antagonized by factors within the host cell. This close relationship is the theoretical basis for future antivirals that target the host rather than the virus itself, a concept termed host-directed therape ... Full text Link to item Cite

TMEM41B is a host factor required for the replication of diverse coronaviruses including SARS-CoV-2.

Journal Article PLoS Pathog · May 2021 Antiviral therapeutics are a front-line defense against virally induced diseases. Because viruses frequently mutate to escape direct inhibition of viral proteins, there is interest in targeting the host proteins that the virus must co-opt to complete its r ...

Enterovirus 2Apro Cleavage of the YTHDF m6A Readers Implicates YTHDF3 as a Mediator of Type I Interferon-Driven JAK/STAT Signaling.

Journal Article mBio · April 13, 2021 Enteroviruses (EV) deploy two proteases that mediate viral polyprotein cleavage and host cell manipulation. Here, we report that EV 2A proteases cleave all three members of the YTHDF protein family, cytosolic N6-methyladenosine (m6A) "readers" that regulat ... Full text Link to item Cite
