我过去以蝎为代表开展毒素多肽生物学研究,创建了蝎毒素多肽资源库,发现了蝎毒素多肽的分子多样性,首绘了蝎全基因组图谱,揭示了蝎毒素多肽分子多样性的产生机制,发掘了蝎毒素多肽的抗肿瘤、抗菌、抗病毒功能及作用机制,开拓了蝎毒素多肽研究和药用新领域。现在主要开展离子通道在病毒感染中作用以及在此基础上抗病毒多肽的筛选与设计研究。/ Before, I focused on the biology of toxin peptides (e.g. scorpion), involving in the library construction, diversity and its mechanism, pharmacological roles and their mechanisms of scorpion toxins. Today, I am interesting in the functions of ion channels in the infections of viruses, and then the discovery of antiviral peptides.
