How Does It Work? | CRISPR Mechanism

The CRISPR Cas9 System was first discovered as part of the bacterial adaptive immune response against viruses, but in recent years it’s revolutionized our techniques for genome editing. The Cas9 complex is formed of two components. A protein called Cas9 that can cut double stranded DNA, and a guide RNA, that binds to a specific …Read More >

How Does It Work? | Peptide-Oligonucleotide Conjugates

This week’s episode of our “How Does It Work?” series features Peptide-Oligonucleotide Conjugates. Peptide-oligonucleotide conjugates are made up of peptide and oligonucleotide components. These cutting-edge molecules have many applications in biomedicine. The oligonucleotide component can interact with mRNA to alter gene expression within diseased cells but oligonucleotides are easily degraded in the body and have …Read More >

How Does It Work? | Aptamers

Nucleic acids have long been regarded as biological compounds for storing and transferring information. However, their functionalities are far more diverse than this – ranging from gene regulation to enzymatic catalysis. One type of unconventional nucleic acid is the aptamer. Aptamers are short, single stranded nucleic acids that fold into highly specific structures. They bind …Read More >

How Does It Work? | Individualized Oligonucleotide Therapies

In this week’s episode of our “How Does It Work?” video series, we explore Individualized Oligonucleotide Therapies. Around 6 billion letters form the genetic code that makes each person’s biology unique. Genomic sequencing allows us to read this code to find defects that cause disease, enabling us to tailor therapies for individual patients. This was …Read More >

How Does It Work? | Antisense Oligonucleotide Therapy

In this week’s installment of our “How Does It Work?” video series, we’ll explore Antisense Oligonucleotide Therapy. Errors in DNA, known as gene mutations, can originate harmful proteins that cause disease. However, we can target the mRNA involved in the formation of specific disease associated proteins by using drugs called antisense oligonucleotides. They work by …Read More >

How Does It Work? | Peptibodies

#Research has explored the ways to extend the half-life of peptide drugs. One innovative way to achieve this is by fusing #therapeutic peptides to the Fc region of an antibody to create what is known as a peptibody. When the peptibody is naturally taken up by cells it binds to an Fc (antibody) receptor within …Read More >

PD-1 Blockade Protein in 4th Generation Armored CAR-T Cells Enhances Cytotoxicity Effect with in vitro Re-challenge System

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cells are genetically engineered T cells that express a surface receptor to recognize tumor-associated antigens (TAA). CAR-T cell therapy have demonstrated remarkable success with hematological malignancies. However, limited headway has been made towards solid tumor, due to various challenges, including recognition of tumor-specific antigen trafficking and penetration, localization and survival within …Read More >
