Researchers investigating ways to develop a novel class of antiviral drugs to treat coronaviruses, including the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, have developed a platform that can rapidly screen thousands of compounds to identify potential candidates. The team, led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, used their new high-throughput platform to screen drug compounds that inhibit the macrodomain—a protein fold that plays a critical role in the coronavirus life cycle. Prior studies suggest that some coronaviruses as well as alphaviruses largely lose their ability to replicate in cells and cause disease when their macrodomain’s enzymatic activity is disrupted. In this study, researchers targeted the macrodomain of SARS-CoV-2 called Mac1. FULL ARTICLE
