Nicole Zitzmann in the Department of Biochemistry and members of her team, together with colleagues from Italy and France, have published their findings in PNAS. Their work on the enzyme, a key component of the quality control machinery that ensures that glycoproteins fold properly, opens the way for the development of potent and selective antivirals against a range of deadly diseases.
