Gene repair and mutagenesis mediated by chimeric RNA-DNA oligonucleotides: chimeraplasty for gene therapy and conversion of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).


Gene augmentation is an attractive and viable approach in treatment of inherited diseases, despite its limitations, such as the eliciting of host immune response, and the sustainability of gene expression. Therefore, alternative therapeutic approaches are being investigated, such as the use of chimeric RNA-DNA oligonucleotides (chimeraplasts), in which a… (More)
