Efficacy and Mechanisms of Copper Ion-Catalyzed Inactivation of Human Norovirus br


By: B. Mertens n, M. Moore n, L. Jaykus n & O. Velev n

author keywords: norovirus; viral inactivation; antiviral; copper; Tulane virus; disinfection
MeSH headings : Alloys / pharmacology; Capsid Proteins; Catalysis; Copper / pharmacology; Ions; Norovirus / drug effects; Norovirus / physiology; Virus Inactivation
TL;DR: The combined data demonstrate that stabilized Cu(I) ion solutions show promise as highly effective noroviral disinfectants in solution that can potentially be utilized at low concentrations for inactivation of human noroviruses. (via Semantic Scholar)

Human Norovirus Aptamer Exhibits High Degree of Target Conformation-Dependent Binding Similar to That of Receptors and Discriminates Particle Functionality

MSPHERE, 1(6).

By: M. Moore n, B. Bobay n, B. Mertens n & L. Jaykus n

author keywords: aptamer; GII.4; histo-blood group antigen; infectivity; noroviruses
TL;DR: A hitherto unexplored property of a different type of ligand, a nucleic acid aptamer, to mimic receptor binding behavior and assess capsid functionality for a selected strain of norovirus is reported, suggesting that other aptamers may show promise in the study of other fastidious microorganisms.

Characterization and control of surfactant-mediated Norovirus interactions

SOFT MATTER, 11(44), 8621–8631.

By: B. Mertens n & O. Velev n

Contributors: B. Mertens n & O. Velev n

MeSH headings : Colloids / chemistry; Hydrogen-Ion Concentration; Norovirus / chemistry; Norovirus / drug effects; Protein Aggregates; Static Electricity; Surface-Active Agents / chemistry; Surface-Active Agents / pharmacology; Vaccines, Virus-Like Particle / chemistry; Vaccines, Virus-Like Particle / drug effects
TL;DR: Zeta potential data is used to characterize virus surface charge and interpret the mechanisms behind these demonstrated surfactant-virus interactions, which will aid in practical formulations for virus inactivation and removal from contaminated surfaces. (via Semantic Scholar)
