American scientists researching the corona virus have met with great success. Scientists at the American Museum of Natural History have identified the gene that gives it biological resistance and the ability to spread epidemics. This deadly weapon (gen) from Corona was still unknown. It is said that due to this discovery, the work of manufacturing a vaccine or drug against the corona virus will likely be greatly enhanced.
Will help manufacture a vaccine or medicine
According to the team of scientists at the American Museum of Natural History, 15 genes (partly responsible for the conservation of genetic properties) in the genome of the corona virus have been identified to date. This can have an effective effect on the development of vaccines or drugs against this virus. The latest study was published in the journal E-Life. In this, the scientists mentioned genes in the genes of the virus.
This gene is a deadly weapon of the corona virus
It is believed to play an important role in the replication of the virus in the bodies of infected people. Chase Nelson, working at the American Museum of Natural History and lead author of the research paper, said the gene in the gene could be a weapon of the corona virus that could help the virus replicate and target immunity in infected people. Do it. He said the presence and function of genes in genes could open up avenues for new ways to control the corona virus.
Scientists named the 3D ORF gene
The gene identified by researchers in the genes of SARS Cove-2 (Corona virus responsible for Kovid-19 disease) is called ORF3D. This gene has the ability to encode more proteins than expected (knowledge of how it works). They reported that ORF3D was also present in the previously discovered pangolin corona virus, indicating that this gene underwent a developmental sequence during the development of SARS-Cove-2 and related viruses.
This gene fights anti-corona antibodies
According to the study, ORF3D was independently identified and found to work strongly against antibodies designed to fight disease in Kovid-19 patients. This demonstrated that a new type of protein was formed during the transition from a new gene to humans. Nelson said that we still don’t know its function or therapeutic significance, but we can predict that this gene is rarely identified by T cells (anti-infective cells) in order to produce antibodies to fight it. And find out how the gene protects itself.
