Protein in the body – effective against hepatitis C

Gentaur proteinProtein in the body can improve its ability to detect and treat viral infections such as influenza and hepatitis C. This conclusion leads a laboratory study by researchers from the University Institute of cancer in Pittsburgh, USA. 
 
To start playback in the body, the virus actually “invaded”cells and “takes” control over them. 
 
Experts explain that, despite progress in the field of vaccines and treatment diseases caused by viral infections remain among the leading causes of death in the world. According to them, there is a need for a new type of security and the new discovery appears to be promising for further studies. 
 
Scientists isolated protein of similar oligoadenylate synthetase-occurring in humans, suffering from liver cancer, caused by hepatitis C. When the Expert increase the levels of this protein in human cells, observed inhibition of virus replication. 
 
In later study found that murine organisms in which there is no presence of the protein are susceptible to a large extent of a viral infection, in comparison to those who have it. 

Viruses affect the ribonucleic acid (RNA), including hepatitis C, influenza and respiratory syncytial virus, using RNA as the genetic material, when played back. 
 
The types of treatment, based on the protein like oligoadenylate synthetase, can enhance the ability of cells to detect RNA, used by the virus, and thus to activate the immune system to stop its reproduction.
