Predicting Zika virus structural biology: Challenges and opportunities for intervention

Antiviral Chemistry & Chemotherapy

Jun 15, 2016

Bryan D CoxRaymond F Schinazi

Abstract

Zika virus is an emerging crisis as infection is implicated in severe neurological disorders-Guillain-Barré syndrome and fetal microcephaly. There are currently no treatment options available for Zika virus infection. This virus is part of the flavivirus genus and closely related to Den...read more

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Emerging Infectious Diseases are defined as those whose incidence in humans has increased in the past two decades or threaten to increase in the near future. Discover the latest research on Emerging Infectious Diseases.

West Nile Virus

West Nile virus is primarily a mosquito-borne illness that manifests as an asymptomatic infection, west nile fever, and/or west nile neuroinvasive disease. Discover the latest research on West Nile Virus here.

Ebola Virus

Ebola Virus causes ebola virus disease, and is one of the deadliest pathogens known to man, with a mortality rate between 25-90% depending on the species and outbreak of ebola. Discover the latest research on Ebola Virus.

Viral Protein Structures

Viral proteins are used for assembly and for assisting in infection and replication in the host. The structure of these viral proteins depends on their function. Capsid proteins surround the virus and can take on different forms depending the mechanism of entry. Here is the latest research on viral protein structures.

Zika Vaccines

The challenges in developing a safe and effective Zika virus vaccine include limiting side effects such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, a potential consequence of Zika virus infection. Discover the latest research on Zika vaccines here.

Oncoviral Profiles

Viral infections have been found to be responsible for causing some cancer types in humans. The collection of the viral genome gathered from cancer genome sequencing data can help identify the origin of the cancer. Here is the latest research on oncoviral profiles.

Zika Fever

Zika fever is an infectious disease caused by the Zika virus.Most cases have no symptoms, but when present they are usually mild and can resemble dengue fever. Symptoms may include fever, red eyes, joint pain, headache, and a maculopapular rash.Disocver the latest research on Zika fever here.

Dengue Virus

Dengue Virus, a mosquito transmitted pathogen, is the causative agent of dengue fever, the most important arboviral disease of humans, which affects an estimated 50-100 million people annually. Discover the latest research here.

Encephalitis

Encephalitis is a condition of inflammation of the brain parenchyma, occurs as a result of infectious or autoimmune causes, and can lead to encephalopathy, seizures, focal neurological deficits, neurological disability, and death. Here is the latest research.

Antivirals

Antivirals are medications that are used specifically for treating viral infections. Discover the latest research on antivirals here.
