Discovery of effective anti-cancer chemicals in marine coral
Utah: Although this may sound like a movie story, the fact is that scientists have been searching for a molecule to eradicate cancer for 25 consecutive years, which has now been found.
It was first discovered in coral reefs but was not fully understood. Now not only is it re-mixed but it can also be prepared in the laboratory instead of soft coral which is called synthesis process.
We have known for a long time that a hospital can be hidden in the oceans. Then there are the colorful and coral reefs that make up the wonderful chemical ingredients that can be a new drug store or even an ear. Eleutherobin was discovered in the Great Barrier Reef during the 1990’s. It destroys cancer cells and prevents cancer, but its structure and structure could not be uncovered.
Eric Schmidt, a professor at the University of Utah, wrote in a report in the leading scientific journal Nature Chemical Biology that not only has the source of eleutherobin been found to be soft coral, but its genetic properties have also been observed.
Scientists have long wanted to know the genetic makeup of eliotherobin, but at the same time they wanted to know if special soft corals make them themselves or if the small plants attached to them, the dinoflagellates, produce these chemicals. However, coral reefs still do not produce enough eleutheroben to be used for medicine or for experiments.
Dr. Eric and his research colleagues have now discovered that a plant closely related to coral, the sea pen, also contains good amounts of eliutherobin. Since then, a complete genetic study has been done. Similarly, a number of chemical components similar to elevathrobin were discovered and tested by adding them to a bacterium.
The gene cluster has now been synthesized in a modified E. coli bacterium. That is, if the amount of ‘Eleutherobin’ is naturally low, then there is no problem, but we can make the desired amount in the laboratory.
Experts believe that there may be thousands of healing molecules in the oceans, especially in soft peanuts.
