Nucleocapsid CTD Assignment

The 1H, 13C, and 15N backbone chemical shift assignments of the nucleocapsid C-terminal dimerization domain (CTD) of SARS-CoV-2 is now online. The coronavirus nucleocapsid protein (N protein) of the coronovirus is a RNA-binding protein involved in viral transcription and replication. The domain architecture of the coronavirus N protein consists of an N-terminal RNA-binding domain (NTD), […]
