Scientists reveal the mechanism of liquid-liquid phase separation of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid

By | June 16, 2021
A team of scientists from the United States has recently revealed how interactions between the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein and the double-stranded RNA motifs impart distinct droplet properties that can support multiple viral functions. The study is currently available on the bioRxiv* preprint server.
