The combination of Cas9, guide RNA and repair template DNA can induce precise gene editing and the correction of genetic diseases in adult mammals. However, clinical implementation of this technology requires safe and effective delivery of all of these components into the nuclei of the target tissue. Here, we combine lipid nanoparticle-mediated delivery of(More)
In Escherichia coli, rotation of the flagellar motor has been shown to depend upon electrostatic interactions between charged residues of the stator protein MotA and the rotor protein FliG. These charged residues are conserved in the Na+-driven polar flagellum of Vibrio alginolyticus, but mutational studies in V. alginolyticus suggested that they are(More)
Safe and effective delivery is required for siRNA and mRNA-based therapeutics to reach their potential. Here, we report on the development of poly(glycoamidoamine) brush nanoparticles as delivery vehicles for siRNA and mRNA. These polymers were capable of significant delivery of siRNA against FVII and mRNA-encoding erythropoietin (EPO) in mice. Importantly,(More)
In this paper we present a method for automatically generating collection of topics from Wikipedia/Wikibooks based on user input. The constructed collection is intended to be displayed through an intuitive interface as assistance to the user creating Topic Maps for a given subject. We discuss the motivation behind the developed tool and outline the(More)
Cyclins and cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) are hyperactivated in numerous human tumors. To identify means of interfering with cyclins/CDKs, we performed nine genome-wide screens for human microRNAs (miRNAs) directly regulating cell-cycle proteins. We uncovered a distinct class of miRNAs that target nearly all cyclins/CDKs, which are very effective in(More)
