WHAT IS CORONA VIRUS?

Corona virus

Dear friends ,today the world is under a dangerous pandemic the COVID-19 so-many people dying word wide,so I think it is necessary to write on corona virus,how ever our regular subject remain 'human aging'
Before going the details of corona virus we should know what is viruses,

What is virus?

In1886 Adolf mayor,a German agricultural chemist who first described about a disease,the tobacco mosaic disease,mosaic like appearance on leafs of tobacco plant.later Martinus Beijerich given the name Virus,Virus is a latin word,means a poisonous subsance                                       
Viruses are generally considered as non living things, but they active when enter a host cell.they consist of genetical codes(the RNA or DNA)body is covered  by a protein coat,which is known as. Capsids,in some virus especially in the case of novel corona virus the capsid is covered by two layers of lipids,which is known as envelop.viruses cannot multiply themself,they must enter living cell. When they Come out from a living cell they become inactive,this inactive virus is called as virion,this is responsible for infection.if it did n't get a host cell in certain time period the lipid coating and capsid begins to degrade,then it cannot attach to the host cell

Which are the corona viruses that attacked human?

Corona virus SARS-CoV(sever acute syndrome) is identified in southern China in 2003,MERS-CoV(Middle East respiratory syndrome)identified in Soudi Arabia in 2012,and this is the third one SARS-CoV2,the causativ agent of  the deseas COVID-19 and this virus also fist identified in China in 2019.

How long survive corona virus outside the host cell?

Novel corona virus can survive3 days on stainless steel surfaces and plastic surfaces,it can live on air for hours,one day on card boards and four hour on copper.the virus survive longer time at lower temperature,higher humidity and non porous surfaces like stainless steel.

HOW THE CORONA VIRUS INFECT HUMAN?

Role of protein on ageing

Role of protein on aging Protein which controls the length of telomere are telomerase and a protein complex known as shelterin.a new study by Scripps Reserch Institute (TSRI) discovered a new protein named as TZAP (telomeric zinc associated protein)which decrease the length of telomeres by trimming,telomere is the clock of a biological cell,if it's length is too short the cell cannot multiply,a human cell can divide maximum 50 times,if it increase more, our life span may increase considerably.
Certain proteins undergo oxidisation which are known to be associated with ageing and some age related diseases,when people turn about 80 approximately half of the bady proteins are damaged due to oxidation,the oxidation occurs because of random chemical degradation,that are associated with convention of food particles to enregy( metabolism) .
Protein's misfoldings are another reason for ageing,when native proteins are synthesised in our cells,which is in helical(Alfa helical)structure and…

Why we are getting old?

How we are getting old?The answer is simple,the 'errors'.the errors that happening during cell multiplicaton and by the influences of external factors.so many changes happens in DNA every year,most important one is the shortening of telomers,a telomere is the tail end of chromosome  The free radical theory of aging,which developed in 1950s,says that the reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced during mitochondrial function react with their DNA(mtDNA) and other cell organalls make sever cdamage and decline in mitochondrial function that leads to aging,ROS is produced when mitochondria makes energy,when you eat more the mitochondria produce more energy at the same time more ROS also produce,so eating less can increase life span to an extent.

In 1961 an american scientist L.Hayflick discovered that human cells have limited capacity to divided,after 50 cell divions the cell not able to divide again,this limit is called Hayflck limit,the cell gradually lose its efficiency and is said …
