Introduction: What they say:  

A recent study from the Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China shows that “Sox2 functions as a sequence-specific DNA sensor in neutrophils to initiate innate immunity against microbial infection.” This study was published in the 2 March 2015 issue of the Journal “Nature Immunology” [the number one journal in immunological research with an impact factor of  24.973] by Drs. Zusen Fan, Xia and others.


What we say

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Amino acid-based Immune enhancement therapy: Leucine, an essential amino acid,  increases SOX2 expression and promotes innate immunity against bacterial infection via down-regulation of its target gene


From Research Findings to Therapeutic Opportunity:

This study suggests, for the first time, that Leucineby decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may : (1) increase the expression of Sox2; (2) increase the ability of Sox2 to recognize bacterial DNA in cytoplasm; and (3) promote innate immunity against bacterial infection.

Together, pharmacological formulations encompassing Leucine  or its analogs either alone or in combination with other drugs” may be used to (1) enhance innate immunity against bacterial infection; and (2) promote bacterial resistance (figs. 1-2).
