New Research on Crispr

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'll give these a read and try to pluck out some key ideas. 


"Expanded targeting by RESCUE means that sites regulating activity and function of many proteins through post-translational modifications, such as phosphorylation, glycosylation, and methylation, can now be more readily targeted for editing."

"RESCUE could be deployed transiently in situations where a modification may be desirable temporarily, but not permanently."

"To facilitate additional work that will push RESCUE toward the clinic, as well as enable researchers to use RESCUE as a tool to better understand disease-causing mutations, the Zhang lab plans to share the RESCUE system broadly, as they have with previously developed CRISPR tools."

(http://news.mit.edu/2019/new-crispr-platform-expands-rna-editing-capabilities-0711) quotes above from this article.

Herpes virus is made up physically of different types of Glycoproteins. This could benefit herpes research by giving us another way to attack the virus and interfere with it.

One step closer.

Any advancement in gene editing platforms is just another possible glimmer of hope. Seems like RESCUE could be a big missing link for CRISPR to effectively disrupt viruses

      You have to lower your stress.Stress is a big key.Me im trying to sleep more and lower my stress.Im trying to not worry about having herpes.I have it,and there is nothing i can do,So why stress myself about it?Im taking medicine to help suppress it.For me stress and sleep are my biggest factors.

      How long after you had sex with this woman did you exhibit symptoms? What makes you think she has herpes?

      Hi she got the cold sore a couple days ago after oral . Always use a condom. She isn’t got herpes as far as I’m aware but she got a cold after she performed oral on me . She sent me a pic of the cold sores.  I don’t know why they didn’t do blood tests. I have read a PCR test is accurate. I don’t know how to get closure from this.

      Im no admin, but ive seen many folks share photos looking for info. I think its ok.  If I may ask, how long after having sex with this woman did the symptoms appear?  Ive heard that pc swabs are pretty accurate.. Did this woman tell you she has herpes, or did you hear it through a third party?  I dont see why they wouldnt give you the iGg / iGm blood test. If im not mistaken, you can order one yourself and go to a local Quest/Labcorp (depending on where you live)  i assume the cold sores are on her mouth? Did you see them, or did she tell you about them?

      Hey @K1009 that all sounds a typical experience of transmission between partners. Please take heart, after the first few months, many people experience extremely few outbreaks of any with gHSV-1. Also you cannot feasibly give this back to your partner, you are now concordant sexually in terms of HSV and your immune systems will protect you from further infection.
