A new study finds that the human protein that is responsible for the production of our muscles and nerves also helps us fight infections.
It was previously thought that a single amino acid called leucine helps keep the muscles and nervous system working.
The new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, found that it’s made by a different group of proteins called serine and thymine.
“Serine and threonine are not only essential for the function of muscle, they are also important for the formation of new neurons, which can then be used for other functions,” lead author and geneticist Andrew J. Hagerty said in a press release.
Hagerty and his team, which included researchers from UC San Diego and the University of Pennsylvania, used genetic sequencing to discover a new gene, serine-threonine-serine, that codes for a protein that converts the serine amino acid into the threonin protein.
The serine is a key part of how our muscles, nerves and blood vessels function, and the thioin is crucial for maintaining healthy blood vessels.
Serine is one of many serine proteases found in the human body, and these proteins can be converted into serine, thyine and other amino acids.
Hagerson said that the proteins found in our muscles are also essential for our health, and we need them to keep our muscles functioning.
“Our ability to fight infection is greatly impacted by how well our muscles can repair damaged tissues,” he said.
“It is important to know that our body is constantly looking for ways to make serine more efficient and efficient at producing proteins for the nervous system.
It turns out that serine makes this process work better, and that this process is responsible, in part, for the protective effects of serine against infection.”
This research could be useful in developing drugs to prevent and treat infections and to help us protect against certain diseases, such as the common cold.
Hangerty and colleagues were able to find the new serine protein in the DNA of patients who had been infected with tuberculosis.
They were able then to analyze the protein’s structure to see whether the protein had changed over time, which led to the discovery that the protein is essential for muscle function.
Serum proteins are known to be involved in inflammation and inflammation-related diseases.
Hagerson and his colleagues are now working to see if they can develop a drug to inhibit the activity of these serine proteins in a person’s body.
