Researchers identify cellular serpins as host factors that restrict SARS-CoV-2 infection

The mass vaccination programs against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) received massive media attention and were widely credited for reducing the threat of the disease. However, many countries struggle to obtain enough doses to immunize their population, and some immunocompromised individuals are less protected by the vaccines. There is still a…

Mass Vaccination Triggers Spike in Cases, Deaths

Researchers have confirmed that it’s not the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself damaging the body’s cells, it’s the spike protein. And it does this by binding ACE2, which can lead to mitochondrial damage. STORY AT-A-GLANCE Doctors for COVID Ethics have been warning about the potential for gene-based COVID-19 “vaccines” to cause blood…

New bioinformatics method to analyze viral sgRNA

Single guide ribonucleic acid (sgRNA) molecules are produced by discontinuous transcription, in which viral RNA-dependant RNA polymerase pauses early negative-sense RNA synthesis and then jumps to the other end of the genome. The specifics of this process are still not fully understood. Since sgRNAs can play an important role in…

Study finds sarbecoviruses circulating in wildlife outside Asia can infect human cells

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and past SARS-CoV outbreaks were a result of zoonotic spillover of sarbecoviruses from animals to humans. Although most of the animal sarbecoviruses do not infect eukaryotic cells, clade 4 sarbecoviruses recently found in China…
