Development of Enzymes which can Fight HIV by an Indian

Dr. Indrani Sarkar of India along with her team of scientists have developed an enzyme called Tre. Tre is a custom enzyme capable of detecting, recognising and destroying HIV, much like a pair of molecular scissors.

Indrani started her PhD thesis, in 2002 at the max plank institute in Dresden, Germany. The enzyme that Indrani constructed after a year and its 126 “cycles of mutation” totally deplete HIV in the human genome in three months in laboratory conditions.
