Washington: Scientists have been able to uncover the molecular mechanism by which the deadly Ebola virus assembles, providing potential new drug targets.The study also showed that the same molecule that assembles and releases new viruses also rearranges itself into different shapes, with each shape controlling a different step of the virus`s life cycle. Erica Ollmann Saphire, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Immunology and Microbial Science at TSRI, said that like a `Transformer`, this protein of the Ebola virus adopts different shapes for different functions. He asserted that it revises a central dogma of molecular biology-that a protein molecule has one shape that predestines one biological function."
