Prenylation of Viral Proteins by Enzymes of the Host: Virus-Driven Rationale for Therapy With Statins and FT/GGT1 Inhibitors

Published date : 08 Sep 2017

Intracellular bacteria were recently shown to employ eukaryotic prenylation system for modifying activity and ensuring proper intracellular localization of their own proteins. Following the same logic, the proteins of viruses may also serve as prenylation substrates.
