Imagining Life with a Genetic Disorder: The Challenge of Evaluating Health States that Exist from Birth

Received: 29 March 2021;  Published: 14 May 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2102130

Abstract

This article explores difficulties encountered by those with no personal experience of a chronic disease or disability in accurately evaluating the quality of life with a condition present from birth. In most countries, cost-effectiveness analysis relies on ratings of health states by me [...]

Role of DNA Damage and MMP Loss in Radiosensitization-Induced Apoptosis by Ellagic Acid in HeLa Cells

Received: 22 September 2020;  Published: 14 May 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2102129

Abstract

Ellagic acid (EA) is a polyphenol found in grapes, pomegranates, walnuts, etc. exhibits anti-cancer properties. The current study was conducted to understand the radiosensitizing role of EA on HeLa cells. Monotherapy of EA and radiation was initially studied on HeLa cells. The addition of EA before [...]

Modulation of Gene Expression in Human Breast Cancer MCF7 and Prostate Cancer PC3 Cells by the Human Copper-Binding Peptide GHK-Cu.

Received: 20 January 2021;  Published: 06 April 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2102128

Abstract

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, while prostate cancer is the most common cancer affecting men. Despite significant advances in diagnostics and treatment, these cancers have a high risk of metastases and greatly reduce quality of life. Recently, it has been established t [...]

Current Progress in Cancer Immunotherapies Using Small Molecules Targeting PD-L1 Stability

Received: 11 January 2021;  Published: 24 March 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101127

Abstract

PD-L1 is an immune checkpoint protein that is frequently overexpressed by the cells in the tumor microenvironment. PD-L1 binds to PD-1 present on the activated antitumor T-cells, which allows for tumor immune escape. The ability of the PD-1/PD-L1 axis to suppress antitumor immunity enables its appli [...]

Development of a Novel Pipette Tip-Aided Cell Cloning Method for The Effective Isolation of Genome-Edited Porcine Cell

Received: 11 October 2020;  Published: 10 March 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101126

Abstract

Direct colony cloning of adherent mammalian cells using rings or dilution cloning has been used frequently for obtaining stable transfectants after gene delivery. As an alternative to these methods, successful isolation of the cells in a single colony is possible by placing a trypsin-immersed small [...]

Translating RNA Splicing Analysis into Diagnosis and Therapy

Received: 31 December 2020;  Published: 08 March 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101125

Abstract

A large proportion of rare disease patients remain undiagnosed and the vast majority of such conditions remain untreatable whether diagnosed or not. RNA splicing analysis is able to increase the diagnostic rate in rare disease by identifying cryptic splicing mutations and can help in interpreting th [...]

In vitro Electroporation in the Presence of CRISPR/Cas9 Reagents as a Safe and Effective Method for Producing Biallelic Knock-Out Porcine Embryos

Received: 01 September 2020;  Published: 18 February 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2101123

Abstract

The production of genetically modified (GM) pigs is considered valuable in biomedical research for the development of model animals for various diseases and pigs with resistance against viral infection. The porcine genome may be modified using several methods, such as somatic cell nuclear transfer ( [...]

Successful i-GONAD in Brown Norway Rats by Modification of in vivo Electroporation Conditions

Received: 23 September 2020;  Published: 03 December 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2004121

Abstract

Improved-Genome editing via Oviductal Nucleic Acids Delivery (i-GONAD) was developed for in situ genome editing of the preimplantation embryos present within the oviductal lumen of mice. This method is based on intra-oviductal instillation of genome editing components and subsequent in vivo electrop [...]
