DNA Repair Mechanism - NEIL

DNA repair mechanism through Protein NEIL3: 

DNA, a nucleic acid which contain genetic information, used in the development and functioning of all known living organism and viruses. In this article we are going to discuss about NIEL3, a protein responsible for maintaining the integrity of DNA in Human and other mammals. Protein NIEL3 was first discovered in the year 2008 and since then it is considered as a basic DNA maintenance enzyme of type glycosylase.

It functions as a maintenance protein by patrolling the strands of DNA, checking for lesions-places where one among the four DNA bases has been damaged by radiations or chemical activity. While patrolling if it finds any damaged bases, it cuts those damaged bases free from the DNA backbone also kicking off follow-on mechanisms that links in the proper undamaged bases.

Looking at the importance of protein NEIL3 as maintenance protein, researchers and scientists took special interest in protein NEIL3 and came up with the common vi

Technology that increase the efficiency of vaccines

Technology Enhancing Vaccine Efficiency:

It is a well known fact that, for any pharma companies the most crucial and challenging issue is inventing a technology that can enhance the activity of vaccines. A paper published in Journal vaccine, 2008, by a company called Cure Lab, Inc. a Massachusetts based biotechnology company developed a new methodology for anti-viral vaccination. This vaccination technology comprises of two main components: The 1st component comprises of vaccine antigen that should be in two patterns. One should be easily processed inside the organism’s cells by an intracellular “chopping machine” called proteosome, while other element is resistant to “chopping”. According to the research published in Journal Vaccine, both these forms of an antigen would be used in combination to elicit a much stronger immune response than either of them would be able to do alone.

With the invention of technology that could create a form of viral protein that could be easily proces
