Researchers find unknown proteins of herpes virus that could lead to improved care
The experiment examined infected cells with the herpes virus and took a close look at the proteins produced inside the cell for the first 72 hours. According to News-Medical.net, the study aimed to predict all the proteins that the virus can produce.
Ultimately, the data showed that the original genome study of the herpes virus is not enough to understand the internal biology of each specific virus. The hope is, by studying how these specific reactions take place, a better means of treatment could be found in the foreseeable future.
