The major focus of the Krug laboratory is the regulation of the processing and nuclear export of cellular and viral mRNAs in virus-infected cells, and the structure and function of viral proteins that regulate this mRNA processing. This research centers on the NS1 protein encoded by influenza A viruses (NS1A protein), which is a unique regulator of several cellular post-transcriptional events in both the nucleus and cytoplasm.
