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

Antiviral therapy for chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses: Suramin (trade name: Moranyl, Naganin, Naganine and others), a drug used in the treatment of sleeping sickness and others, 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, 10/April/2018, 7.17 pm
