Scientists Develop Biotech Soybean to Fight AIDS

Scientists at Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária (Embrapa) in Brazil are developing a biotech soybean that can produce an anti-viral protein that can be used to fight human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Scientists at Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária (Embrapa) in Brazil are developing a biotech soybean that can produce an anti-viral protein that can be used to fight human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The biotech soybean produces cyanovirin-N, an anti-viral protein that inhibits the virus cycle by binding to certain sugars. The power of the protein has been studied by other scientists in the U.S., however, studies regarding the protein has been impeded by the difficulty of finding an economically viable way to produce the protein in large scale.

 

Embrapa has partnered with the National Cancer Institute of Brazil and the U.S. National Institutes of Health to develop the biotech soybean.
