The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) announced on 11 February 2020 the name of new virus as ‘severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). On same date, World Health Organization declared the disease name as COVID-19. Millions of people are affected by COVID-19 across the globe. Study shows the shape of coronavirus virions as spherical to pleomorphic, means assumed to take various shapes. Projected glycoproteins are present as studs on envelop of this virus. These glycoproteins are responsible for attachment with host cells through Aminopeptidase-N and Sialic acid containing receptors. These glycoproteins carry antigens like 229E and OC43. Impacts of these antigens are totally different; however mechanism of interference with genome is having similarit...

Immunity means adequate biological defense to fight untoward invasion to keep body in balanced state. It is barrier or eliminator of many of pathogens entering in normal physiological bodies. It may be innate or adaptive. Innate is non-specific mechanism of defense which works immediately coming in contact of antigen. While adaptive one is antigen-specific defense working through recognition of specified antigen. Genes play an important role in immunity development through guiding the specific function of body and that affects immunity. Gene expression is related to roadmap of regulatory networks in immune cells. Studies indicate that transcriptional regulation is associated with control of gene expression in various immune cells, both adaptive and innate. RNA polymerases are receiving si...

Viruses are autonomous infectious complexes consisting of protein and RNA or DNA genome. Enveloped viruses have lipid layers in addition to protein and nucleic acid.  They lack cellular structure and metabolic processes, but they are obligatory pathogens utilizing host’s cellular molecules and structures for their survival and propagation. Recently in Wuhan, China spread of Corona virus has taken the form of pandemics. The chances of killings by this virus are in millions. Chinese reports show it in controlled manner. Deaths started in Europe and USA. A joint-mission by WHO-China conducted from 16th to 24th February published findings as 78,959 cases in China while 4351 cases in 49 other countries. WHO estimates higher risks at global level. It is not just an epidemic, but is taking the s...
