GER began their music career from a young age and started to build a small following on social media platforms while entering singing competitions and attending both music and voice lessons through his teenage years.GER decided it would be best to further his music career by attending the University of Limerick to study music in 2017.

I’m not one to get political and usually stay away from all of that, but to be honest I just couldn’t stay silent any further.“This song is a message to the Irish government and its people to do better. People need to take more responsibility for keeping everyone safe. It’s been an extremely tough time but we need to keep going and trying our best.“This song also asks the government to take a look at some of their guidelines and to take extreme consideration in what they said so they don’t contradict themselves. For example one of the lyrics in the song is, “200 in a shop, still not allowed, 6 in a house what’s that about”. The rules need to start making sense if there is ever going to be progress.”Luke said, “We are a voice for young people and all people in Ireland. Ger really wanted to have our voice heard and we think this song best represents the frustrations we are all feeling right now going through this pandemic.” Email Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limericklast_img read more

Pioneering a ‘staple’ approach for treating COVID-19

first_imgStrategies to bar the coronavirus (COVID-19) from entering cells — thereby preventing infection and averting transmission of the virus — are among the most promising treatment approaches to COVID-19. Everything from antibodies to specially made snippets of RNA are being mustered in the effort to develop a safe and effective coronavirus blocker.An approach notable for its ingenuity — and the fact that it has proven successful in other types of viruses — has been pioneered by Loren Walensky a pediatric oncologist and chemical biologist at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders, and his colleagues. Using what are known as stapled peptides, the approach seeks to jam the “landing gear” that the virus uses to fuse to the cells of the human respiratory system.The new virus consists of a short coil of RNA wrapped in a protein envelope that includes stalk-like projections resembling points on a crown. A key surface protein “contains a series of coiled sections known as alpha helices,” Walensky said. “The virus deploys three of these helices to overlap with three others to form a six-helix bundle that fuses with the human cell membrane, allowing the virus to penetrate and infect the cell.“Our approach is to make a ‘decoy’ helix that slips between the two groups of helices to prevent the bundle from assembling,” he said.The decoy consists of a stapled peptide. Peptides are short chains of amino acids — not long enough to be full-fledged proteins — but can interact with proteins to modulate a variety of cellular functions.“One advantage of using peptides is that they are nature’s solution to targeting proteins,” Walensky said.Early attempts to use natural peptides as therapies faced obstacles because the peptides can lose their shape and get degraded rapidly once injected into the body.A chemistry-based solution was to reinforce peptides with hydrocarbon “staples.” In 2010, Walensky and his associates showed that a stapled peptide could effectively target the fusion apparatus used by HIV-1, the virus that causes AIDS.Because many other viral families — including those of the RSV, SARS, MERS, and Ebola viruses, as well as the novel coronavirus — use the same fusion mechanism, there are valid reasons for believing this approach will work against them as well.“As we previously demonstrated for the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), our newly designed stapled peptides targeting the novel coronavirus’ helical bundle may be effective both as a way to prevent infection as well as to block the spread of infection to the lungs in people with established infection,” Walensky said.Experiments are currently underway to test the Walensky lab’s peptides against the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.last_img read more
