Hossain et al. explore the binding surface of the multifunctional P-protein of rabies virus for STAT1, a protein that is essential for establishing the antiviral response of infected cells. They identify a complex interface comprising several distinct sites and demonstrate that targeted modifications of these can significantly attenuate pathogenic virus.
