Structure and dynamics of picornavirus capsids to inform vaccine design

Abstract:

The physical properties of viral capsids are major determinants of vaccine efficacy for several picornaviruses which impact on human and animal health. Current picornavirus vaccines are frequently produced from inactivated virus. Inactivation often reduces the stability of the virus capsid, causing a problem for Foot and Mouth Disease Virus (FMDV) where certain serotypes fall apart into pentameric assemblies below pH 6.5 or at temperatures slightly above 37°C, destroying their effectivenes...
