- [Narrator] Coronaviruses invade cells
through so-called spike proteins.
The spike protein is the major surface protein
that binds to a receptor,
which acts like a doorway into a human cell.
Once the spike protein
and the surface of the human cell membrane fuse together,
the genome of the virus is able to enter the human cell
and begin infection.
Understanding the shape of the spike protein in COVID-19
is the key to figuring out how to target the virus
and accelerate potential vaccines.
Jason McLellan and his team at University of Texas at Austin
in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health
are credited with this important step,
which may help in the development of a vaccine
against the coronavirus.
