iBET paper selected as “Featured Article” of the month in AMB Express journal


Earlier this year, iBET scientists from the Animal Cell Technology Unit published a paper in AMB EXPRESS journal showing that transport of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) envelope protein E2 is regulated by its intracellular association with cellular protein CD81, which can further contribute to elucidate unknown aspects of HCV biology. This work was now selected as Featured Article and one can see it highlighted in AMB Express website homepage for the month of March 2019.

AMB Express is a high quality journal that brings together research in the area of Applied and Industrial Microbiology with a particular interest in 'White Biotechnology' and 'Red Biotechnology'.
