Scientists in the United States have developed a new technique to prevent the spread of corona. This new mechanism blocks special proteins that propagate the corona. Once the corona enters the body, proteins damage important parts of the immune system. This new technique can prevent corona cells from growing. According to experts, the research will be effective in developing drugs to fight corona. The research is published in the journal Science.
Scientists had developed two atoms for this process. Which inhibits the caesarean enzymes used by the corona virus. This is called SARS-CoV-2-PLpro. SARS-CoV-2-PLpro causes both viral and human proteins to grow. “These enzymes promote protein release,” said Olson, an assistant professor of biochemistry and structural biology at the Health Science Center. This helps to replicate the virus.
This enzyme inhibits molecules such as cytokines and chemokines, Professor Olson said. Which signals an infection to the immune system. ‘SARS-CoV-2-PLpro typically cuts the chain of ubiquitin and ISG15 human proteins, a technique researchers have developed. Which can prevent SARS-CoV-2-PLpro from growing. This identifies proteins that are closely related to human proteins. Not just viral enzymes but human enzymes with similar function can be inhibited.
