Abstract

Aim: to characterize the molecular interaction of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and particularly two domains of its Nsp3 protein, with non-canonical nucleic acid structures present in human cells. These structures known as G4-RNA and their interaction with Nsp3 constitute new therapeutic targets. Tests developed under this project will enable research on molecules to inhibit such host-virus interaction and potentially block virus replication in infected individuals.
