Huntington's gene editingResearchers used gene editing to suppress the activity of protein mutations in the brains of mice with  Huntington’s disease. Suppressing the huntingtin protein alleviated early signs of the disease and reduced the mice’s movement problems, the study reported. The research, “CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene editing ameliorates neurotoxicity in mouse model of Huntington’s disease,” was published in The […]
