News: Molecular Security System That Protects Cells from Potentially Harmful DNA Discovered
Researchers at the University of Minnesota have discovered a molecular security system in human cells that deactivates and degrades foreign DNA. This discovery could open the door to major improvements in genetic engineering and gene therapy technologies. Led by Reuben Harris, associate professor of biochemistry, molecular biology and biophysics in the College of Biological Sciences, the report's findings will be published online by Nature Structural and Molecular Biology on Jan. 10.

Journal: Gene Therapy
Gene Therapy covers both the research and clinical applications of the new genetic therapy techniques currently being developed. The application of molecular biology has revolutionised our understanding of many diseases and has been readily applied for diagnostic purposes. Over the last decade, gene therapy protocols have entered clinical trials in increasing numbers. Covering a wide spectrum of diseases, these studies promise to unite the diverse organ based specialities into which modern medicine has become divided. Gene Therapy covers all aspects of gene therapy as applied to human disease, including preclinical animal experiments, novel platform technologies for gene transfer, and gene expression analysis.
