Prints in 3-5 business days
This, the eighth volume in the Proteases in Biology and Disease series, focuses on the role of proteases in virus function and their potential as anti-viral targets. The respiratory illness... More > ‘severe acute respiratory syndrome’ (SARS) was first reported in Asia in November 2002, and rapidly spread to several other countries across the world. The SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV) causes SARS and a key step in the replication of the virus is the cleavage of the viral polyproteins by the SARS-CoV main protease. In the first chapter of this volume, Wei-Zhu Zhong and colleagues describe the functional importance of this protease in the viral life cycle, which is an attractive target for developing drugs against SARS, and outline a rational, structure-based approach to inhibitor design.< Less

Viral Genome Replication By Craig E. Cameron et al.
Paperback: List Price: $199.00 $119.40 | You Save: 40%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Currently, there is no single source that permits comparison of the factors, elements, enzymes and/or mechanisms employed by different classes of viruses for genome replication. As a result, we (and... More > our students) often restrict our focus to our particular system, missing out on the opportunity to define unifying themes in viral genome replication or benefit from the advances in other systems. For example, extraordinary biological and experimental paradigms that have been established over the past 5 years for the DNA replication systems of bacteriophage T4 will likely be of great value to anyone interested in studying a replisome from any virus. These studies could easily go unnoticed by animal RNA and DNA virologists. It is our hope that this monograph will cross-fertilize and invigorate the field, as well as encourage students into this area of research.< Less
