The first complete structure of an M1 protein from an infectious salmon anemia virus, as revealed by scientists at Rice University. The structure of the protein, which forms a protective shield around the viral contents, is similar to that of influenza viruses that infect humans, but no structures for those have been produced that show both the N and C domains.

N&H TOPLINE: Salmon virus discovery could aid flu research

Details of salmon virus structure could aid researchers looking at ways to stop influenza virus.

The structure of a protein key to the survival and spread of a virus that affects salmon could inform strategies to treat influenza in humans, according to scientists at Rice University.
