Abstract

Viruses completely depend on cellular factors to multiply. In spite of their unique coding features, different viruses have been shown to depend on some common host factors. Consequently, it should be possible to develop broad-spectrum antivirals by targeting them. In the presentation, the author will give an overview of the concept of host-targeting, broad-spectrum antiviral drugs and our work on natural products. The author will specially focus on metabolites isolated from myxobacteria, one of the top producers of natural products with host-targeting properties.
