Szostak and his co-author Burckhard Seelig, used a technique called mRNA display – previously developed in Szostak which enables which enables the identification and amplification of proteins An enzyme, certain criteria. An enzyme, would stimulate or catalyze the joining of two segments of RNA to create in a manner which does not occur naturally, it began by generating a library of 4 trillion small proteins with minor variations in their sequences. Each protein together with the together with the RNA segments to be joined, known substrates.

– We hope that our work show the optimization of this enzyme is that we catalysts with activity as good as that of naturally occurring enzymes develop, Szostak explains. We want to determine the 3D structure of the new enzyme to understand how it binds to its relatively larger substrates and catalyzes the joining of the two RNA strands. The Alex Rich Distinguished Investigator in Molecular Biology at MGH, Szostak also professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute and a member of the MGH Center for Computational and Integrative Biology. This study was supported by a grant from the NASA Astrobiology Institute, and Seelig’s by the Emmy Noether by the Emmy Noether – Program of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.. Szostak notes that the final version of the enzyme have created quite small and still not very stable, but it is a starting point for the discovery of additional strategies that can help improve their business.– If there is a avian influenza pandemic, you will want minimized minimize the catch by staying indoors, you could even required staying at home unless the government invites you that the population in quarantine or sheltering in place and place.
