A Possible Weapon to Kill Coronavirus was Found by a Teenager – Virus 25

We have talked about possible drugs and vaccines to contain coronavirus (Sars Cov 2) at previous posts, some are:

What is a Monoclonal Antibody to Treat Donald Trump? - Virus 22

What is mRNA Covid-19 Vaccine? - Virus 15

Updates of Vaccines to Combat Covid-19 – Virus 12

Is Remdesivir a Potential Drug Against Covid-19? - Virus 11


A 14 years old teenager, Anika Chebrolu from Texas, proposed a new weapon, a kind of “specific” molecule to fight virus.


She was the winner of “2020 3M Young Scientist Challenge,” and got US$ 25,000 prize.


As we know that “Hemaglutinin” is an important “protein” in influenza vaccines. What is the Hemaglutinin?


One of the street in the neighborhood, just for illustration


Hemaglutinin is “antigen glycoprotein” found on the virus surface, in this case is the influenza virus.


The antigen glycoprotein to bind virus and infected cells, while this happening, then viral RNA genome penetrates into cytoplasm of cells.


They are replicating in the host (human) by using DNA polymerase of host cell. Replicating from one to thousands over time.


Why Hemaglutinin (antigen glycoprotein) is important in vaccines?


Vaccines such as an influenza vaccine is designed to trigger immune system to produce antibody to fight Hemaglutinin, then control virus.


Moreover, by using a method, namely “in silico methodology,” Anika Chebrolu found a “specific molecule” to bind spike protein on the corona virus, covid 19, SARS CoV 2 virus.


This “specific molecule” may be used to develop Covid 19 vaccine or drugs in the near future. Hence, we will have a lot of weapons to contain Coronavirus.

  3. Isn't it amazing that a 14 year old came up with this!! It is so encouraging that we have scientific knowledge like this coming along in generations. Congratulations to all of them and hopefully another tool in the belt to deal with this and upcoming viruses.

  5. Good idea. But, you have to remove Trump, and then we can live again.
