COVID-19: Scientists find promising first step in antiviral treatment

This shows a testtube and covid19Biological sequencing of the fusion peptides of SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 found them to be a 93% match. Calcium ions interacting with the fusion peptide alters the peptide’s structure, and how it interacts with membranes to promote infection. The findings provide a potential target for antiviral development to treat coronavirus.
