Revisiting the RSV G protein as a target for drugs and vaccines.

What is it about?

A review of our current understanding of the role of the RSV G protein in RSV biology and its re-emergence as a drug target for RSV.

Why is it important?

Most of the drug targets against RSV target the F protein. This review re-visits the importance of the RSV G protein in its biology and discusses its potential as a drug target.
