ISU researchers find possible treatment for spinal muscular atrophy

... protein because of the presence of a specific intronic sequence in the gene or DNA. To make SMN2 behave as SMN1, Singh has introduced a small antisense oligonucleotide that blocks this specific intronic sequence. When the intronic sequence is blocked, SMN2 produces normal proteins and acts, in ...

A new gene silencing platform -- silence is golden

... Gene silencing molecules also have potential prophylactic and therapeutic applications based upon ongoing clinical trials using RNAi and traditional antisense approaches. For some genes that cause disease, these other approaches may not be effective enough and U1 Adaptors may provide a novel solution.' ...

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory scientists devise potential approach to treat spinal muscular atrophy

... copy of the gene to include the missing piece. Dr. Krainer and his team sought to change the splicing by introducing synthetic molecules, called antisense oligonucleotides or ASOs, that precisely match various sections of the RNA. They reasoned that if these molecules stuck to the right part of the RNA, ...

Scientists discover role for dueling RNAs
