DNA origami used to identify vaccine design rules by Engineers
MIT researchers have designed HIV-like particles that provoke a strong immune response from human immune cells grown by folding DNA into a virus-like structure in a lab dish. Such particles might eventually be used as an HIV vaccine.
In recent months, Bathe’s lab has created a variant of this vaccine in which they swapped out the HIV antigens for a protein found on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They are now testing whether this vaccine will produce an effective response against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in isolated B cells, and in mice.
Researchers say, because this approach allows for antigens from different viruses to be carried on the same DNA scaffold, it could be possible to design variants that target multiple types of coronaviruses, including past and potentially future variants that may emerge.
