Autophagy: A Multipotentialite

Tanvi Yalamanchili Abstract Autophagy is an important cellular process involved in cellular health and disease. This review addresses the major mechanisms of autophagy and explores how this process contributes to numerous human diseases. Research suggests that infection by SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes the novel human coronavirus disease COVID-19, may be mediated by autophagy. This …

A review into the influenza virus, its spread, drug resistance and the steps taken to reduce outbreaks

Abstract Humans have made remarkable progress, and even today they are at the stage of controlling and managing certain aspects of human biology by extending lifespan and gene cloning. Although scientific research has precluded the expansion of multiple diseases in retrospect, a virus remains to be the greatest prospective threat to global health. This research …
