Studying the molecular mechanism of viral replication in real-time

  • Company/University: Oxford University, UK
  • Interviewee: Alfredo Castello-Palomares
  • Products used: CLARIOstar Plus with ACU
  • Method: RNA-binding assay, protein-RNA interaction, real time monitoring of viral protein production over 72 hours

Alfredo Castello-Palomares is principal investigator in the Department of Biochemistry at Oxford University, UK. In this video, he talks about identifying and characterising cellular RNA-binding proteins required for viruses to spread by using HIV as a model. For more details on Alfredo´s work have a look at the application note Studying the molecular mechanism of viral replication in real time using the CLARIOstar Plus with ACU.
