Goldilock protein which sets for proper immune response remains known, researchers say

There are certainly a lot of abnormal actions produced by the immune cells. It can be of any autoimmune disease or a kind of inflammation. Researchers from Sinai Health have identified a novel pathway that hampers hazardous reactions. They found a protein WAVE2 in the immune cells and studied its role in the immune balancing system.

When the protein WAVE2 is knocked off, it results in the weakening of immune systems against viral infection, and also significantly rises other complications like autoimmunity. Also, other researchers contributed to the study by observing another protein mTOR that got elevated in the absence of WAVE2, which leads to the same sequelae as before.

The immune system should be in balance to avoid any unnecessary reactions. It is as much compared to Goldilocks. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 situation now can recreate the thinking process as it demands further study. Owning to this virus has led the host to suffer from multisystem failure due to cytokine storm, which is an overwhelming immune reaction. So the focus is to develop the stop the activity of WAVE2-mTOR expression to reduce the inflammatory condition and also to restore immune balance.
