Scientists from all over the world are working to gather information about the coronavirus. An attempt is being made to find out how the corona spreads across the body. scientists have claimed to have found out which genes in the body spread the virus.
Experiments on monkey cells
Scientists have done this work with the help of a gene-editing tool (CRISPR-Cas9). This makes them aware of some genes that help corona to spread to the root in the body. In the study, scientists put some genes in African green monkey cells. They then infected them with the coronavirus. They then looked at which genes are proviral, which spread the virus and which are fighting against it (anti-viral).
What is the use of study?
Scientists say that with its help it will be able to know how this virus affects the human body. It is also said to help in making the right vaccine, which will directly target those genes or cells that can stop the virus.
Body protein rolls are important
The study looked at the genes and pathways used to propagate the virus inside the body. Protein roles are considered important in this. One form of this enhances the virus and the other helps in fighting the virus. According to the study, the ACE2 receptor and Cathepsin L protein help to spread the infection. At the same time, the histone protein tries to stop it from growing.
Covid-19 medicine news: a drug used in the treatment of Covid-19 Remdesivir
Recently a medicine of coronavirus has been introduced in the market, Hyderabad-based company Hetero has created a generic version of Remdesivir under the name COVIFOR.
