A team of scientists from the University of British Columbia, Canada, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, USA, recently conducted structural analysis of a newly emerged UK variant of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). In their analyses, they observed that the N501Y mutation in the receptor-binding domain (RBD) of the virus’s spike protein increases the receptor binding efficiency of the virus, thus making it more infectious. Most importantly, however, the…
