The University of Valencia (UV), the Institute of Biomedicine of Valencia (IBV) of the CSIC and the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII) are investigating the molecular mechanism by which the SARS-CoV-2 virus assembles virions (morphologically complete particles but not contagious since they do not contain the viral RNA) in the cells infected in COVID-19. The work analyses the membrane proteins (that when separated would cause the destruction of the cell envelope) and has been funded in the ISCIII FONDO-COVID19 call, aimed at supporting research projects on the virus and the disease it causes.
