Study reveals the inevitability of Zika virus dumbbell-1 structure for viral pathogenesis

In a recent study posted to the bioRxiv* server, researchers designed two dumbbell-1 (DB-1) mutant Zika virus (ZIKV) infectious clones termed ZIKV-TL.PK and ZIKV-p.2.5′. While the former disrupted DB-1 tertiary folding, the latter altered the formation of DB-1 secondary structure. They used these mutants to investigate the contribution of the DB-1 structure to ZIKV pathogenesis. …
