Re: Researchers conduct to verify anti-aging proteins

Well, generally speaking that is true of most proteins over time the DNA of the cells starts to gain mutations which silence the gene that generates the proteins needed by the body. The lower concentration of that protein just shows the amount of damaged gene sequences that were generated by DNA rep...

Yes, Download YASARA then download the package for Amino Acids or the full package, this will allow you to actually molecular model the peptide chains and see the exact shape of the protein structure generated but warning you will need a computer with a Fast Processor, Powerful Graphics Card, and mu...

None, if it does not contain the gene or does not have the receptor required for the lentivirus to gain entry into the cell type. I have been answering many questions about Glycoproteins today. Glycoproteins are what the virus uses to enter the cell with a receptor to which the Glycoprotein binds to...

Re: Does EBV contribute to breast cancer?

Any virus that inserts its genome into a host can always cause cancer when it puts its DNA into the host there is always a chance that it could damage an important gene sequence that regulates cell division, growth, DNA repair, or apoptosis, which all could cause cancer to start which is uncontrolle...

Re: PPFD and kWh conversion

Well, you are going to need to use the physics equation E=h*C/ λ to convert the light wavelength to energy per photon, first convert nano-meters into meters then plug this into the equation modified for wavelength. E= Energy in (joules per photon) C = Speed of Light in (meters per second) h = Plank'...

Re: 2 Genetics questions

Well, he acquired this extra long chromosome due to the fact that another chromosome at one point broke off and stuck to the one with the extra long chromosome it happens sometimes due to failures in DNA repair pathways probably Double-Strand Break Repair. Secondly, Terminators, the two types are (1...

Re: HIV The Virus

Well, the HIV Envelope is very quickly destroyed as you said outside the human body unless there is a liquid so if there is much liquid on the surface then it could survive for a long time especially when the liquid is Blood, body fluids or Polyethylene Gycol, any of which can make the HIV Virus sur...

Re: Norovirus uses a protein to infect cells

The Glycoprotein will only attach to a receptor of a certain structure allowing the virus to enter the cell and deliver its payload. In the mouse version the Glycoprotein has a structure is such a way to infect mouse cells and only mouse cells with this receptor as for the human version it has the G...

Re: HIV survival outside the body

If you added Polyethylene Gycol to the solution the HIV Virus would go dormant and survive but the HIV virus's envelope does not usually allow it to survive outside the body the envelope will break down after a very short amount of time unless it comes in contact with active living T-Cells to infect...

Well, if you were making a TB vaccine, I would suggest Genetically modifying Bacteriophages attachment proteins that rather than attach to E. coli or whatever its original target is to bind to the proteins on the surface of the TB bacteria, that would fully kill the infection if that is the problem ...

Question about Viral Glycoproteins

I was wondering about how exactly Viral Glycoproteins attach to the viral envelope are there little molecular holes specific to the envelope that the Glycoprotein fits into for each virus or does the envelope form around the Glycoprotein attachment automatically like the envelope of a cell does for ...
