Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have developed artificial enzymes. It can successfully prevent HIV from being activated in the immune cell.
The IISc said in a statement on Thursday that these nano enzymes made from Vanadium pentoxide nanosheets act as an oxidase on the natural enzyme glutathione.
It reduces the pressure level of oxidative in the carrier’s cell and is necessary to prevent the virus. The study has been published in molecular medicine. The study was conducted by Associate Professor Amit Singh and Professor Govindsami Mugesh in organic and physical chemistry.
The advantage is that enzymes in biological systems remain stable and do not have any unwanted response within the cell, “Said Mugesh. According to the statement, there is currently no way to completely eliminate the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from a patient’s body.
Anti-HIV drugs can only reduce the effect of viruses, but HIV is not destroyed by an infected cell. The virus within the immune cell remains in a safe place.
