Researchers discover titanium oxide nanoparticle that recognizes SARS-CoV-2’s non-structural protein 1

A pioneering study, released as a preprint on the bioRxiv* server, reports on the interaction of a tailored titanium oxide nanoparticle (NP) with the full-length severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) non-structural protein 1 (nsp1). This should be of value in developing new therapeutic tools against coronaviruses that act by targeting their proteins. It […]

Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 (PD1)

Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD1) is a protein that is preferentially expressed in the body’s immune B, T and NK cells. It is a transmembrane protein that binds to other proteins known as programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) and programmed death ligand 2 (PD-L2), which are members of a family of co-inhibitory/co-stimulatory molecules, known […]
