Laboratory of T Cell Engineering at SIAIS and collaborators report new technology for genome editing in CAR T cell

Author£ºSIAIS Date£º2018-10-10

Recently, Research Associate Professor Xuekai Zhu from T Cell Engineering Laboratory at SIAIS, and Professor Xingxu Huang from SLST have developed a new technology for the preparation of genome-edited chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells based on non-viral vectors. The researchers used the CRISPR/Cas9 system to achieve efficient knockout of the PD-1 gene in human T cells, while stably integrating and expressing CD133-specific CAR via the transposon system. The study was published in the journal Human Gene Therapy titled with Nucleofection with Plasmid DNA for CRISPR/Cas9-Mediated Inactivation of Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 in CD133-Specific CAR T Cells.

From the Phenotypic Screening group of Guang Yang, a hope for the treatment of a rare disease

Author£º Date£º2017-9-21

Keracthitis ¨C Ichtyosis ¨C Deafness (KID) Syndrome, is a rare genetic disease, caused by mutations of GJB2 gene, which produce severe phenotypes in skin and inner ear. Connexin 26 (Cx26) proteins, encoded by GJB2, olygomerize to form gap junction channels, which allow direct communication between two cells, or connexin hemichannels, which function as regular membrane channels. Connexin hemichannels are normally close in physiological condition, but can open in response to a variety of electrochemical stimuli. Several point mutations of Cx26 that lead to KID syndrome have been shown to produce hemichannels which do not correctly close in physiological conditions (hyperactive hemichannels).
