تطوير الباحثون في Mayo Clinic لنظام أكثر كفاءة لإعادة برمجة الخلايا الجذعية

Mayo Clinic

تبدأ الخلايا الجذعية متعددة القدرات المستحثة، التي تعد العمود الفقري للعديد من مشروعات الطب التجديدي، كخلايا متباينة يتم إعادة برمجتها إلى خلايا جذعية متعددة القدرات عن طريق التعرض لمجموعة معقدة من مزيج من الجينات. أفاد باحثو Mayo الآن باستخدام ناقل فيروس الحصبة؛ فلقد قاموا بتقليص العمليات المتعددة الناقلات ذات عوامل إعادة البرمجة الأربعة إلى عملية ناقلات فردية "دورة واحدة". يقولون إن العملية آمنة ومستقرة وأسرع ويمكن استخدامها للترجمة السريرية. تظهر النتائج في مجلة Gene Therapy.
