PLpro Inhibitors Against SARS-CoV-2
There are two cysteine proteases that are encoded by SARS-CoV-2, the main protease (Mpro) and the papain-like protease (PLpro). Both of these proteases have been shown to be essential in viral replication and are validated antiviral drug targets. PLpro cleaves the viral SARS-CoV-2 polyprotein at three sites. In addition, it modulates host immune response...

Discovery of Non-Covalent Inhibitors Targeting the SARS-CoV-2 Main Protease
This technology encompasses the development of novel inhibitors for the main protease, or Mpro, of SARS-CoV-2. The main protease of SARS-CoV-2 is a validated drug target and could be key to the development of more antiviral drugs against the virus. The inhibitors proposed in this technology are notable, as they are non-covalent inhibitors with high...

Bioactive Compounds for Use in Inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 Viral Replication
University of Arizona inventors have discovered inhibitors targeting the SARS-CoV-2 main protease. These inhibitors have potential for use as therapeutics against COVID-19 as well as other SARS and MERS strains. Background: Viral outbreaks are not new; we have faced SARS, MERS, Nipah, Zika, and several other viral outbreaks in recent history. In late...
