A research group led by Professor Asuka Nanbo, National Research Center for the Control and Prevention of Infectious Diseases, Nagasaki University, has developed an imaging system for visualization of Ebola virus glycoprotein throughout the viral lifecycle, applying a system that can reproduce the Ebola virus at the BSL-2 facility. This system will enable the characterization of the molecular mechanism of viral lifecycle and can be applied for the development of therapeutics against severe Ebola virus disease.
Their findings were published in Frontiers in Microbiology, an international journal of microbiology.
