Study reports new compound halting replication of COVID by targeting ‘Mac-1’ protein in cell models

KU research shows for the first time that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, can be inhibited from replicating in living cell cultures using a compound that targets “Mac-1,” a protein key to defending SARS-CoV-2 against the human immune response. The findings also hold promise that Mac…
