Equine major histocompatibility complex class I molecules act as entry receptors that bind to equine herpesvirus-1 glycoprotein D
The endotheliotropism of equine herpesvirus‐1 (EHV‐1) leads to encephalomyelitis secondary to vasculitis and thrombosis in the infected horse central nervous system (CNS). To identify the hostExpand

Discovery of a novel antiviral agent targeting the nonstructural protein 4 (nsP4) of chikungunya virus.
Chikungunya fever (CHIKF) is caused by chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infection which is a re-emerging mosquito-borne zoonosis. At present, there are no approved therapeutics for CHIKF. Herein, we haveExpand
