Molecular processes of coronavirus identified

MAASTRICHT 13 May 2020 – Scientists of Maastricht UMC+ and Maastricht University are closely involved in describing the molecular mechanism of the coronavirus. Based on available research data, molecular interactions that the virus enters into with a human host cell and the influence of the virus on the metabolism and immune system are visualised, among other things. This provides new insights to aid research as well as pointers to help in the search for a vaccine. An international group of scientists has recently published their work in the scientific journal Scientific Data.
