The discovery of genetic genes that can combat fatal human diseases

The American scientific magazine Cell said that American scientists have discovered the presence of a genetic gene in mice and monkeys, one of whose mutations blocks AIDS, Ebola and other deadly viruses.

 According to the journal, the CHMP3 gene, which plays a key role in vital cellular processes to maintain cell membrane integrity, intercellular signaling, and cell division, is also present in humans, but in its original state. If scientists can modify it, it will be a huge breakthrough in the fight against many dangerous viral diseases.

 Researchers from the University of Utah Medical Department and the Rockefeller University in New York discovered that mice and monkeys have an altered version of the retroCHMP3 gene that encodes changes in the relevant protein, which suppresses the ability of viruses to exit the infected cell, thus preventing infection of neighboring cells.
