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

      I received the ‘optimal dose’ in phase 2. Made me and many others worse. That’s why this died. Just my opinion but vaccines are not the way.

      I got diagnosed with HSV2 in February 2019 and have had a pretty hard time dealing with it. I am 20 and got it from guy who coerced me into having sex and didn't use a condom even though I said he had to. I hadn't had sex since that incident until this past weekend, when I met a guy who is now a professional athlete that used to go to my school. Needless to say I was interested. Far too many drinks later he ended up at my house and we had sex... but I was drunk and wasn't thinking and we didn't use a condom. I'm on suppressive treatment so I don't know if I necessarily gave it to him but I can't help but feel guilty and ashamed. I hated that the guy who gave it to me did it so recklessly and I had promised myself I wouldn't have sex until I was in a relationship and could trust the person enough to talk about it with them. I also can't stop thinking about what would happen if he got it, if he told his friends, his old teammates. Rumors travel fast and these social circles are small and I am filled with stress just thinking about it. Any advice besides never do that again?
