Permanent modification of the human genome in vivo is impractical owing to the low frequency of homologous recombination in human cells, a fact that hampers biomedical research and progress towards safe and effective gene therapy. Here we report a general solution using two fundamental biological processes: DNA recognition by C2H2 zinc-finger proteins and(More)
Glucocorticoid excess in utero inhibits fetal growth and programs adverse outcomes in adult offspring. Access of maternal glucocorticoid to the glucocorticoid receptor (NR3C1) in the placenta and fetus is regulated by metabolism via the 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (HSD11B) enzymes, as well as multidrug resistance P-glycoprotein (ABCB1)-mediated(More)
