Structure Determination of SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid

April 28, 2020

Work is now underway on X Ray Crystallography of SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid Protein. While many important virus structures have been published, the Nucleocapsid remains unresolved. This is one of the most abundant and important proteins in the virus, wrapping the viral RNA, and given its high concentration in positive patient samples, is a promising target for diagnostics.
