Combination of gene therapy and gene silencing prevents neurodegenerative disease

...ve or suppress the disease-gene rather than simply add a corrected version. "Although we know how to put genes into cells, the difficulty we face in treating dominant diseases is how to remove or silence genes," Davidson explained.

Mutant mice lead to memory insights

...inant-negative CBP gene lacked only the ability to add acetyl groups to histone proteins -- called acetyltransferase activity -- but retained the ability to act as a molecular scaffold. The researchers found that when they switched on the "bad" CBP gene, the mice showed impaired ability to form long-term...
