Antiviral therapy for Neuroinvasive West Nile virus: β-(1,3)-glucan/Lentinan(LNT), isolated from mushroom Lentinus edodes, increases the expression of RIPK3, promotes chemokines production, inhibits neuroinflammation, and restricts neuroinvasive West Nile virus production and pathogenesis in neurons via upregulation of its target gene, 20/July/2018, 1.51 pm

β-glucan-based antiviral therapy for HIV virus:  β-(1, 3)-glucan/Lentinan (LNT), isolated from Lentinus edodes, increases Heme oxygenase 2 (HO-2) expression, blocks N-myristoylation of HIV-1 Gag protein, disrupts HIV-1 budding, and restricts HIV-1 production via up regulation of its target gene, 17/July/2018, 11.39 am

What we say: Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: β-glucan-based antiviral therapy for HIV virus:  β-(1, 3)-glucan/Lentinan (LNT), isolated from Lentinus edodes, increases Heme […]

A fiber-based antiviral therapy for chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses: β-(1,3)-glucan (LNT), isolated from mush room lentinus edodes, increases spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) expression, depletes spermidine and Spermine levels, and restricts Chikungunya and Zika viruses replication via up regulation of its target gene, 14/July/2018, 8.07 am
