With modern DNA sequencing technologies it is relatively easy to identify all genes coding for proteins in an organism but it is often much more challenging to really understand the cellular function of proteins. One of our interests is to explore the mechanisms underlying host-pathogen interactions. Viruses have a very limited set of genes and therefore must use the cellular machineries of their hosts for most parts of their growth. Recently, we have discovered a specific host protein called ZC3H11A that many viruses use for their transport within the cell. The discovery opens up new possibilities to develop a broad spectrum anti-viral therapy.
