Genetic Pills A Future Thought
...ken up by a cell, it's moved to an acid-filled compartment called the endosome. A key step here, is to engineer lipids that can get the DNA out of the endosome
and into the cell nucleus where most of the genetic material resides.
Thus researchers conclude saying "What we're doing is reinventing a virus thro...

... the endosome's acidic environment. Low pH prompts the aptly named fusion protein, on the virus's outer membrane, to change shape and grab hold of the endosome
membrane, bringing the two membranes together. In their search for possible pH sensors, researchers have focused on five highly conserved histidine re...
