In silico discovery of antigenic proteins and epitopes of SARS-CoV-2 for the development of a vaccine or a diagnostic approach for COVID-19

Within the genome of SARS-CoV-2, the 5′-terminus encodes a polyprotein, which is additional cleaved into 15 non-structural proteins whereas the three’ terminus encodes 4 structural proteins and eight accent proteins. Amongst these 27 proteins, the current research aimed to find doubtless...

A TLR2-Activating Fraction From Mycobacterium abscessus Rough Variant Demonstrates Vaccine and Diagnostic Potential

Mycobacterium abscessusĀ is a prevalent pathogenic mycobacterium in cystic fibrosis (CF) sufferers and probably the most extremely drug resistant mycobacterial species to antimicrobial brokers. It possesses the property to transition from a easy (S) to a tough (R) morphotype, thereby influencing the...

RTX Toxins of Animal Pathogens and Their Role as Antigens in Vaccines and Diagnostics.

Exotoxins play a central position within the pathologies brought on by most main bacterial animal pathogens. The massive number of vertebrate and invertebrate hosts within the animal kingdom is mirrored by a big number of bacterial pathogens and toxins. The group...

Rift valley fever: diagnostic challenges and investment needs for vaccine development

Rift valley fever virus (RVFV) is a causative agent of a viral zoonosis that constitutes a significant medical burden in wild and home ruminants. The virus causes main outbreaks in livestock (sheep, goats, cattle and camels) and could be transmitted to...
