With single gene insertion, blind mice regain sight

admin/ martie 20, 2019/ tehnologii/ 0 comments

Opsins make ‘blind’ cells light-sensitive; potential human treatment within three years. Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) engineered to target specific cells in the retina can be injected directly into the vitreous of the eye to deliver genes more precisely than can be done with wild type AAVs, which have to be injected directly under the retina. UC Berkeley neuroscientists have taken AAVs
