Scientists Determine Structure of SARS-CoV-2’s Envelope Protein E

MIT chemists have determined the molecular structure of a protein found in the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This protein, called the envelope protein E, forms a cation-selective channel and plays a key role in the virus’s ability to replicate itself and stimulate the host cell’s inflammation response.

A Novel Tool for Predicting Order and Disorder in Proteins

In their new paper, researchers have used machine learning together with experimental NMR data for hundreds of proteins to build a new bioinformatics tool called ODiNPred. This bioinformatics program can help other researchers making the best possible predictions of which regions of their proteins are rigid and which are likely to be flexible.

CO2 Converted to Fuel and Plastic Waste to Useful Chemicals by an Innovative Catalyst

Researchers dealt with both the problem of excess CO2 and plastic waste at one stroke, by developing nano solid acids which transform CO2 directly to fuel (dimethyl ether) and plastic waste to chemicals (hydrocarbons).
