Door Pharmaceuticals, a company founded by MCB faculty member Adam Zlotnick, presented a paper at the International HBV Meeting
Door Pharmaceuticals, a company founded by MCB faculty member Adam Zlotnick, presented a paper at the International HBV Meeting (September 21, 2021). Members of the Door team showed that a small molecule that binds the HBV core protein could suppress HBV production. The Door team speculates that the molecule acts by inhibiting transcription of viral RNA.
A team from the Zlotnick lab, led by student Zhongchao Zhao, showed how a deliberately re-engineered capsid protein subunit could be used to control assembly and disassembly, even making “holey” capsids.
