PNNL and Oregon Health and Science University Researchers Identify 71 HCMV Proteins

NEW YORK, Sept. 30 (GenomeWeb News) - Researchers from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Oregon Health and Science University Human have discovered some 71 proteins in human cytomegalovirus, the institutions announced Wednesday.

 

The discovery includes the viral and host proteins that compose the HCMV virion, according to a statement. The research was published in the October Journal of Virology.

 

To conduct this research, scientists used proteomics instruments and approaches that combined the high resolution separations of proteins with their identification at the same time, using mass spectrometry techniques developed in the laboratory of Richard Smith, a Battelle Fellow at Pacific Northwest National Labs.
