Gene Therapy with the Sleeping Beauty Transposon System

Trends in Genetics : TIG

Oct 2, 2017

Partow KebriaeiZoltán Ivics

Abstract

The widespread clinical implementation of gene therapy requires the ability to stably integrate genetic information through gene transfer vectors in a safe, effective, and economical manner. The latest generation of Sleeping Beauty (SB) transposon vectors fulfills these requirements, an...read more

Cancer Vaccines

Cancer vaccines are vaccines that either treat existing cancer or prevent development of a cancer.

CREs: Gene & Cell Therapy

Gene and cell therapy advances have shown promising outcomes for several diseases. The role of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) is crucial in the design of gene therapy vectors. Here is the latest research on CREs in gene and cell therapy.

Gene Therapy

The use of DNA as a technique for treating disease is a key feature of gene therapy. This type of treatment is being investigated to either replacement of a mutated gene with a healthy copy, silence a mutated gene that is dysfunctional or insert a novel gene to help fight disease. Discover the latest research on gene therapy here.

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

Vectors in Gene Therapy

The delivery of genes into DNA for gene therapy is done through the use of vectors, which are often viral vectors. These vectors can be manipulated to include DNA and RNA depending on the type of therapy that is needed. Here is the latest research on vector gene therapy.

Targeted Gene Correction

Targeted gene repair is a technique that can be used to change the DNA sequence at a specific site in the genome to either correct or introduce a genetic mutation. Here is the latest research on targeted gene correction.

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.

Immuno-Oncology

Immuno-oncology (or cancer immunotherapy) is the artificial stimulation of the immune system to treat cancer, improving on the immune system's natural ability to fight cancer. It exploits the fact that cancer cells often have tumor antigens, molecules on their surface that can be detected by the antibody proteins of the immune system, binding to them. The tumor antigens are often proteins or other macromolecules. Normal antibodies bind to external pathogens, but the modified immunotherapy antibodies bind to the tumor antigens marking and identifying the cancer cells for the immune system to inhibit or kill. Discover the latest research on immuno-oncology here.

Parasite Genetics

Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.
