well my DEARS, i have an unsloved mystery. I want ur help abt this FACT

as VIRUS can survive at a very high temperature as u all have sudied, it means there is any HARMONE or any GENE which is present on it that make it enable to survive, so what will happen if we inoculate that gene or harmone from the VIRUS and introduce it in HUMAN BEING?.....i think after this HUMAN BEING will also be enable to live at a very high temperature and will feel warm in the winters also ....

so kindly suggest me the SITE or Any OTHER LINK frm where i may get answer of it ........

It's more due to the inherent design than of a specific gene.

I don't think that it can occur in human body because gene affect the organ target inside our if we isolate the gene from the viruses that you've mentioned before, what organ of our body that will be affected by the gene?

Exactly. What kills organisms when they are exposed to high heat is the fact that enzymes lose function at high temperatures. And where viruses have no enzymes.....

Mithril is deffinetly right on this one. It is not a specific gene, the whole genome of a human is build so that the human functions between specific temperatures. Viruses can withstand extremly high temperatures because they do not have a methabolism which they need to keep working. There is nothing in a virus to be affected by cold or head... within certain limits of course
