HBB gene – Genetics Home Reference

Sickle cell anemia, a common form of sickle cell disease, is caused by a particular mutation in the HBB gene. This mutation results in the production of an abnormal version of beta-globin called hemoglobin S or HbS. In this condition, hemoglobin S replaces both beta-globin subunits in hemoglobin. Continue reading

CRISPR editing is advancing precision medicine, this time …

Scientists from Boston University School of Medicine and Klogene Therapeutics have made precision medicine news this week by showing efficient transcriptional activation of the anti-aging multifunctional gene Klotho by CRISPR-dCas9, as reported in a paper published today in the “Journal of Molecular Neuroscience.” CRISPR is a gene editing tool first introduced six years ago. Continue reading

Gene therapy | medicine | Britannica.com

Gene therapy, also called gene transfer therapy, introduction of a normal gene into an individuals genome in order to repair a mutation that causes a genetic disease. When a normal gene is inserted into the nucleus of a mutant cell, the gene most likely will integrate into a chromosomal site different from the defective allele; although that may repair the mutation, a new mutation may result if the normal gene integrates into another functional gene. If the normal gene replaces the mutant allele, there is a chance that the transformed cells will proliferate and produce enough normal gene product for the entire body to be restored to the undiseased phenotype Continue reading
