CRISPR Study Shows Cas12a May Select DNA Target Sequences More Precisely Than Cas9

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Cas9 enzyme is known to have certain problems with binding to off-target DNA sequences, but for the most part, it is still considered to be the gold standard CRISPR enzyme for genome editing. However, in […]

Enzyme found to control formation of collagen carriers and inhibit collagen secretion

Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have identified an enzyme that controls how much our cells secrete collagen. As collagen imbalance is linked to a range of human diseases, the study provides clues to new therapeutic strategies. Moreover, the […]
