Influenza pandemics can claim million lives worldwide, Asiatic/Russian Flu claiming 1 million in 1889–90, Spanish Flu claiming 40 million in 1918–20, Asian Flu claiming 1.5 million 1957–58, Hong Kong Flu claiming 1 million in 1968–69 making influenza the perfect bitterer agent. Seasonal flu kills between 250,000 and 500,000 people globally in an average year.
For years we searched for Weapons Of Mass Destruction thinking it was huge canisters of urania-yellowcake, anthrax, chemical gases, when in fact it small, it’s viruses. Once released, the virus would not discriminate between friend or foe. Biological Warfare is nothing new, it’s been used for years AIDS, SARS, Ebola, and West Nile Virus. With new DNA technology, researchers can construct viruses and bacteria that can jump the species barrier, bred to spread. Flu viruses mutate constantly, which is why the flu vaccine is changed every year, and they can also swap DNA in a process called reassortment.
Biotechnical breakthrough has deciphered a way of reconstructing the chloroplast signal peptide, hydrophobic region, coil motif and TPR region with a basic helix-loop-helix to prevent protein biosynthesis on the outer surface controlling the glutamyl-tRNA reductase (GLU-TR) by heme implicated in protein–protein interaction. The FLU protein operates independently of heme making conventional vaccines useless. This reverse genetic engineered strain is highly transmissible and transmits well from person to person. This DNA becomes part of the cell, giving it the blueprint it needs to build. Scientists create DNA vaccines by into a circular loop called a plasmid. DNA injected into muscle cells reproduce the viral coat protein and trigger immunization reverse that and you have a weapon. Manmade strains of influenza capable of triggering a human flu pandemic is called "passaging" and involves the repeated cycling of strains of a virus through cell culture.
Pathologist has genetically reconstructed the 1918 Spanish influenza strain (H1N1), one of most deadliest viruses known to humankind. Nine fragments of Spanish flu viral RNA were revealed. Four of the eight viral RNA segments has been completely sequenced including the genes for hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA). H1N1 killed an estimated 20-40 million people worldwide. The virus is an influenza A, H1N1 and contains DNA typical to avian, swine and human viruses, this molecular techniques could be used for the purpose of bioterrorism and when it acquires the ability to pass from person to person, it can spark a pandemic.
