Observed Tariq Rana, director of the Program for RNA Biology at Burnham and his colleagues found that the microRNA suppressed miR29 translation of the HIV – 1 genome by transporting the HIV mRNA processing – bodies , where they are stored – or are destroyed. This leads to a reduction in the viral replication and infectivity. The study has also shown that the inhibition of viral replication and infectivity miR29 increases. The researchers also showed that strains of HIV-1 with mutations in the region of the genome, has been changed, miR29 not discouraged by miR29. Can ‘We think the virus can modulate use this mechanism its own lifecycle, and we can be in a position this to use this to our advantage in the development of new drugs for HIV,’said Dr.This information was on dailyreports.org with kind permission from the Henry J.
