  • Piepoli et al., 2020: Structural analysis of the PATZ1 BTB domain homodimer The crystal structures of the PATZ1 BTB domains from mammals and fish contain homodimers. The core dimer conformation of these BTB proteins is dynamically stable, despite the presence of highly flexible regions in the dimerization interface.

 

  • Piepoli et al, 2020: Molecular Biology of SARS-CoV-2 Understanding the molecular and cellular biology of coronaviruses will increase the speed at which therapies can be generated against COVID-19 and other viral diseases.
