Giant viruses use protein protection to fight bacteria

Giant viruses use protein protection to fight bacteria

Virusologists from the University of California in San Diego found that giant pagogic cells were creating a shielded compliment in honor of the shields that the ancient Aztecs wore.

Researchers used cryoelectronic microscopy and tomography with as much resolution as possible to visualize the cells of giant bacterial bacteria.

It's a separate area of another type -- not like anything else we've ever seen in nature -- we've been able to characterize it, how it's going to work on the most basic level, from a single atom to the scale of the entire body.

In further research, virologists used computer simulations to determine the functions of this protein, and researchers found that the screen was missing certain key components while acting as a protective mechanism against bacterial threats.

Bacteria are not only harmful to humans and animals; for millions of years, viruses and bacteria have fought each other, creating new protective mechanisms in this arms race. Bacteriophagis are one of the promising technologies to combat antibiotic-resistant superbacteria.

Researchers believe that chimallin protein can create a protective shell for viruses that do not have it but are suitable for treating various infections, which will allow the use of evolutionary methods to combat bacteria in the treatment process.
