Abstract:


        A new process in bio-chemistry involves the manipulation of


molecules to defeat diseases, viruses, chemical warfare, and to reduce the


cost of bio-chemical engineering.   This new process is refined in that the


researcher utilizes new computer technology to model the behavior of


certain molecules to insert a "slot" for discarding unwanted foreign


objects.   These unwanted foreign objects are discarded by fixing the slot


to fit the objects.   This slot can be customized, through manipulation and


modelling, to fit many different objects.   Therefore, objects such as


viruses, poisonings, or bacteria, could be jetted out of ones body.   This


aspect could one day benefit millions of people around the world.






Chemical Process:


        Teams from universities successfully inserted instructions for


building an anti-fluorescein antibody in the DNA of bacteria.   This


antibody binds with fluorescein molecules.   Into this chunk of material,


they inserted instructions for buildin g a metal-ion binding sight.   They


discovered where to put this slot by simulating the antibody on a large


computer. The resulting product revealed an anti-fluorescein antibody which


binds to metal ions. After physically inserting the genetic code in to E.


coli. bacteria, the researchers had a large batch of a new compound which


they named QM212.   When copper was added to this new batch, it binded with


the metal-ion binding sight, decreasing the fluorescent emissions.






Applications:


        The human immune system already uses similar antibodies for similar


tasks.   Natural antibodies conform to the shape of foreign bodies and bind


to the outer surface.   They then release enzymes to break down the


substance.   In the experiment, c opper acted as the foreign body while
