 993B - New Research Explores How Coronavirus Attacks Cells | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Dr. Charles Brenner, Lead Investigator at ChromaDex Corporation, joins Dr. Roizen to explain the significance of recent findings about coronaviruses.As scientists work to make sense of the current pandemic, new research has explored how coronavirus attacks cells. One study showed that coronavirus infection in cells and animal tissue induces important NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide)-dependent enzymes, including poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP), which are a critical part of cells’ innate immune response. The study also showed that cellular NAD+ levels declined greater than three-fold as a result of coronavirus infection. The findings suggest that replenishing NAD+ levels, which decline under viral infection, may support increased PARP activity and cell survival during the innate immune response to coronaviruses.

Patients can expect as low as a nine percent chance to live for at least five years after being diagnosed. Going back in time to observe how cells with key gene mutations interact and become invasive would help researchers better understand how the cancer starts and identify it sooner. A pancreatic cancer “time machine” engineered by Purdue University researchers has revealed that the disease is even more unpredictable than previously thought: Cancer cells promote each other’s invasiveness when they grow together.
