The drug aprotinin inhibits entry of SARS-CoV2 in host cells

In order for the SARS-CoV2 virus to enter host cells, its "spike" protein has to be cleaved by the cell's own enzymes - proteases. The protease inhibitor aprotinin can prevent cell infection, as scientists at Goethe University, the University of Kent and the Hannover Medical School have now discovered. An aprotinin aerosol is already approved in Russia for the treatment of influenza and could readily be tested for the treatment of COVID-19.

Researchers recognize a viral protein's M.O. by just 3% of its size

Skoltech researchers and their colleagues from Russia, the US, and Sweden have described an unusual RNA polymerase that helps a poorly studied crAss-like bacteriophage transcribe its genes. They "caught" this enzyme by a tiny -- less than 3% of its size -- portion of the amino acid sequence that was similar to other RNA polymerases.

Pfizer's vaccine relies on a 'cold chain' that keeps the shots colder than a freezer. Here's how it works.

Pfizer and BioNTech 's vaccine must be kept at ultra-cold temperatures on its journey from the production line to a patient's arm.

Leon Neal/Getty Images Pfizer's new coronavirus vaccine will need to be kept hyper-cold, at -94 degrees Fahrenheit, as it is shipped around the globe. That could make it difficult to get the vaccine distributed, especial...
