The FURIN Gene and COVID-19

Here's one more excerpt from our guide to COVID-19 Genes & SNPs, that focuses on the FURIN gene Furin (FURIN) Furin is an enzyme encoded by the FURIN gene. Furin is a proprotein convertase and acts to cleave sections of inactive proteins, in order to activate them. The Furin enzyme is highly expressed [...]

COVID-19 and ACE2

Here's another quick excerpt from our guide to COVID-19 Genes & SNPs, this time focusing on the ACE2 gene Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) ACE2 gene encodes the angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 ACE2 acts as a cell surface receptor for Human coronavirus. Normally, the ACE2 receptor plays an important role in regulating the body’s blood pressure [...]

TMPRSS2 And Its Role in COVID-19

Here's a quick excerpt from our updated and expanded guide to COVID-19 Genes & SNPs Transmembrane protease serine 2 (TMPRSS2) TMPRSS2 is a Serine protease that proteolytically cleaves and activates the viral spike glycoproteins which then facilitates virus-cell membrane fusions; spike proteins are synthesized and maintained in precursor intermediate folding states and [...]

COVID-19 and G6PD

We've again updated and expanded our COVID-19 report and Gene/SNP guide! This time we focused on G6PD and more than tripled the number of secondary SNPs we're looking at. Iron upregulation is happening to many who get COVID-19. G6PD SNPs are categorized into Class I, II and III as the WHO classifies them. Class [...]

COVID-19 and NSAIDs

We've updated and expanded our COVID-19 report and Gene/SNP guide! The biggest update is the addition of PTGS2/COX2 genes and their connection to NSAIDs and COVID-19. We've also updated the information on FUT2 and added SNPs to the COVID-19 report. Previously generated reports are already being updated for free; if your report says v1.1 then [...]
