Message 1698 - Posted: 14 Mar 2020, 19:07:17 UTC - in response to Message 1697.

We are actually expanding a lot of human genes, prioritizing them according to the scientists' interests. Among them this one (ACE2) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/59272 which is closely related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Don't expect we will be able to 'find a cure' but we are trying to add something to better know our enemy.

In the mean time, please, take care.

How about expanding the 400 proteins involved in SARS-CoV-2 processing and replication???

That is a great article. If expanding the 400 proteins would do them any good, I am all for it and can put more machines on it. (The experts will have to decide if it is relevant.)

We just added some other genes related to ACE2, according to this https://string-db.org/cgi/network.pl?taskId=fBQjTFzroyIX

They are AGT AGTR1 AGTR2 REN MME DPP4 PRCP MEP1B MEP1A XPNPEP2, among them we already expanded MME and DPP4. You may see the others' names coded inside the workunits string.

Interesting stuff, I will send the information to my colleagues (BTW we already did the expansion of BRD2, cited in the article, in the past).
