The researchers reported that The boom Called “D614G” is located in the part known as “spike protein”, which is one of the proteins that the virus depends on in order to infect the body with harmful infections.
This protein performs what is like a process of “predation” for cells so that it can enter the body, according to the report published on the site The University of Texas.
The researchers emphasized that this study is the largest to date regarding what is known in the medical community as “genetic sequences” within a specific geographical area.
University of Texas professor of molecular sciences, Ilya Finkelstein, explains that: Corona Virus These mutations are due to random genetic changes that do not harm the virus, nor do they provide it with any help that makes it more powerful.
During the first wave of Corona, these mutations in the virus were observed in 71 percent of patients.Covid-19In the American city of Houston.
As for when the second wave reaches Houston Last summer, 99.9 percent of patients had mutations.
Last July, a study based on more than 28,000 so-called “genome sequences” revealed that the virus that carries the mutation called “D614G” has become the most widespread at the global level for nearly a month.
And the most likely, according to scientists, is that the virus that carries this mutation is faster and spreads more widely.
The virus continues to undergo additional mutations, and when this happens, the “spike protein” that surrounds the virus becomes able to evade the antibody produced by the body in order to fight the infection and eliminate it.
And the experiments, which were conducted in a laboratory of the Methodist Hospital in Houston, revealed that these mutations make the virus more able to penetrate immune system.
