Sequence requirements of viroporin ion channel activity

Bates College CrestProject Summary

The Banks Lab studies biochemical features of viroporin proteins from pathogenic viruses like rotavirus, that disrupt membrane structures inside of our cells. Some of these viral proteins target common sites within the cell, or use related means of causing disease. Our goal is to uncover the most important of these features to inform the design of new medicines, and ultimately prevent or reduce viral infectious disease.
