Antigens Against The Pathogens: Build Your Immune System
As the name suggests, antigens are the substances that enters a body and triggers to stimulate the immune system to fight against any bacteria or viruses attacking the host.

Acquired immunity is the one that is produced in the body on exposure of antigens. Passive immunity is present in infants which they got from their mothers. For any virus, immunity is the one that fights it and kills it. For this, antigens are important. That is why, to treat against coronavirus, a coronavirus antigen is discovered. As we all know, coronavirus is stronger than any other virus and has caused a lot of pandemic.
The main strength of coronavirus is a spike protein named as spike glycoprotein that looks like spikes on the surface of the virus. This is said to bind the receptor domain in the body which is the primary determinant of the coronavirus' ability to enter and infect a body.
USES OF COVID-19 RECOMBINANT PROTEIN
Coronavirus is a single-stranded RNA virus which consists of RNA as the genetic material. RNA viruses are usually strong and one such example is the Ebola virus. There is one main Covid-19 recombinant protein vaccine called RBD-S which prevent respiratory syndrome caused due to this virus. So far, according to the research, covid-19 antigens are the only solution to deal with the situation. Recombinant means the ability of an organism to combine different gene cells. Now that all the information about the covid-19 is extracted, the vaccines are tested well and deployed. The kits and medicines are deficient and it is a tough time for us to go out and get the medicines done. So some of the centers have online delivery facilities that ensure delivery safely and at affordable costs. It's already been 5 months since covid-19 has attacked and after all the studies, all the concepts of the virus such as recombinant proteins, covid-19 antigens, spike proteins has been identified, and vaccines are developed accordingly. It is absolutely safe to use and is sure to cure. Research on this is done every day to discover more remedies to cure the powerful coronavirus. The covid-19 antigens are usually got from another human cells or insect cells that is safe to use and has ability to cure different hosts. This explains the concept of recombinant proteins completely.
The symptoms of coronavirus displays after 15 days. Meanwhile ensure to stay safe and check on yourself.
