Researchers at the University of Texas have decrypted the three-dimensional structure of the corona virus enzyme, and scientists hope these new findings will help them find effective drugs against this virus.
Viruses are not a living being, nor are they a dead being. It is a protein cap that encapsulates a genomic tran-script-ion machine (DNA) that has the ability to transcribe itself very quickly. In order to do this, you must find a living cell to take over. However, before it reaches this cell, why does the immune system not recognize it as a foreign body and eliminate it?
An amazing thing the Covid-19 virus does to escape from the immune system is "camouflage"´-or-"disguise." The virus uses an enzyme called nsp16. This enzyme enables the virus to move freely in the body and treats it as a human cell. Rather, it also helps it with tran-script-ion to double if it enters the cell. With this blurring, the protein making factor in the cell is infected and acquired, in other words the cell multiplies the virus without feeling. It is as if you are entering a fortified building and doing whatever you like without sounding the siren.
After knowing how the Covid 19 virus enters and how to defend immune defense in the body, scientists are working to develop a treatment that prevents the enzyme nsp16, which helps Covid 19 to camouflage.
