CRISPR/Cas9 deletions induce adverse on-target genomic effects

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR/Cas9) have transformed genome engineering techniques. Numerous toolsets have been created to enable easy and efficient loss-of-function perturbations of functional genomic sites. Study: CRISPR/Cas9 deletions induce adverse on-target genomic effects leading to functional DNA in human cells. Image Credit: elenabsl/Shutterstock The CRISPR/Cas9 system’s elements…

Identifying a new lipid metabolism gene

People with familial hypercholesterolemia, or FH, have very high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol circulating in their blood due to aberrant LDL uptake by cells. With LDL levels elevated for prolonged periods, these patients are at increased risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Transgelin is a protein that in humans is…

Modification of endoglin-targeting nanoliposomes | IJN

Introduction Today, malignant tumors (cancer) still severely imperil human health and cause millions of global mortality rates.1,2 Deep-seated solid tumors are challenging to cure by most therapeutic tools, mainly blamed on the complex tumor microenvironment (TME).3,4 Adoptive cell therapy (ACT), as one of the effective immunotherapeutic means for cancer treatment,…
