The maturation process of virophages give us new insights. First, a virus infects a host, such as a unicellular organism in the plankton in the ocean, and then its development is blocked because it is itself attacked by a virus? In this unusual tripartite event, the second virus (termed a virophage) helps the host to survive. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg have now studied the atomic structure and maturation process of the Mavirus virophage, and thus contributed to understanding this system. Their results could, in the future, allow virus particles to be constructed whose properties can be modified, making them useful in biotechnology. READ MORE
