This article will help to figure out how this kind of virus infect human body by introducing the interaction between the four stages of the life cycle of coronavirus and the cytoskeleton. The first stage: virus invasion The first stage of coronavirus infection is Spike(S) protein-mediated attachment to the cell surface via...
Innate immune defenses are triggered in response to virus infection. While failure to induce innate immunity is likely to result in increased infection. Here are the principles of Biology which can give us knowledge on how to fight over Corona Virus Disease of 2019. First is the Gene therapy which involves altering the genes inside your body’s cells in an effort to treat or stop disease. Next is the Knowledge of evolution which can empower public health policy experts to...
