MRBL: Next-Generation Gene Therapy for Molecular Skin Rejuvenation
The next-generation gene therapy for molecular skin rejuvenation combines a comprehensive target gene prediction with a novel transdermal delivery approach for therapeutic adenovirus-associated viruses. The platform targets monogenic disease indications in the skin, and extends the same targets to the treatment of common skin aging conditions.
Synthetic AAV Capsids for Advanced Gene Therapy
The protein shell (capsid) of Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) are presently the most promising delivery vehicles for various in vivo gene therapies. AAVs are non-pathogenic and, through past engineering efforts, have become safe due to their inability to integrate into and damage the genome of target cells. Rather, the delivered DNA containing a therapeutic gene of...
Video/AnimationeToehold: an RNA-detecting control element for use in RNA therapeutics, diagnostics and cell therapiesThis animation shows an example of an eToehold that detects and signals the presence of a specific viral RNA in a human cell. After the virus has injected its RNA into a host cell, the RNA acts as a “trigger RNA” by binding to a complementary sequence within the eToehold specifically engineered for its detection....

Video/AnimationAAV Capsid EngineeringWyss researchers have created a high-throughput platform to generate an Adeno-associated virus 2 (AAV2) library containing 200,000 variants, each carrying a distinct mutation in the virus capsid protein. Their analysis identified capsid changes that enhanced “homing” potential to specific organs in mice and virus viability, as well as a new protein hidden in the capsid-encoding...
