Mapping the glycan shields of enveloped viruses

Abstract:

Glycosylation is a ubiquitous post-translational modification responsible for a multitude of crucial biological roles. As obligate parasites, viruses exploit host-cell machinery to glycosylate their own proteins during replication. Viral envelope proteins form a myriad of human pathogens including HIV-1, influenza virus, Lassa virus, coronaviruses, Zika virus, dengue virus, and Ebola virus have evolved to be glycosylated to varying degrees. These host cell derived glycans facilitate divers...
