New Clue Was Found Regarding the New Coronavirus: Protein DPP4 Keep tracing on the news we released several days ago about the coronavirus in Europe, we found progression in accordance with the Nature report on Mar. 14. And the new coronavirus was named as novel coronavirus or NCoV. The new study found that the new coronavirus can slip into cells in many types of animals. They latches onto a protein called dipeptidyl peptidase 4, or DPP4, which decorates the surface of many cells and differs from the protein that SARS needs, including some in human airways and kidneys. It is identical to adenosine deaminase complexing protein-2, and to the T-cell activation antigen CD26. It is an intrinsic membrane glycoprotein and a serine exopeptidase that cleaves X-proline dipeptides from the N-terminus of polypeptides. The new virus mainly affected respiratory systems and didn't show outbreak, which might because the DPP4 protein's position. It locates on cells in the lungs,
