An anti-CRISPR viral ring nuclease subverts type III CRISPR immunity
Nature, Published online: 15 January 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-019-1909-5
Bacteria and archaea use cyclic oligoadenylate molecules as part of the CRISPR system for antiviral defence; here, a family of viral enzymes that rapidly degrades cyclic oligoadenylates is identified and biochemically and structurally described.
