DNA nanostructures: A versatile lab-bench for interrogating biological reactions

Andrew J. Lee, Christoph Wälti
2019 Computational and Structural Biotechnology Journal  
At its inception DNA nanotechnology was conceived as a tool for spatially arranging biological molecules in a programmable and deterministic way to improve their interrogation. To date, DNA nanotechnology has provided a versatile toolset of nanostructures and functional devices to augment traditional single molecule investigation approaches - including atomic force microscopy - by isolating, arranging and contextualising biological systems at the single molecule level. This review explores the

Microbiota modification in hematology: still at the bench or ready for the bedside?

Christopher J. Severyn, Ryan Brewster, Tessa M. Andermann
2019 Hematology ASH Education Program  
Growing evidence suggests that human microbiota likely influence diverse processes including hematopoiesis, chemotherapy metabolism, and efficacy, as well as overall survival in patients with hematologic malignancies and other cancers. Both host genetic susceptibility and host-microbiota interactions may impact cancer risk and response to treatment; however, microbiota have the potential to be uniquely modifiable and accessible targets for treatment. Here, we focus on strategies to modify

First, we evaluate the use of fecal microbiota transplant to restore microbial equilibrium following perturbation by antibiotics and chemotherapy, and as a treatment of complications of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), such as graft-versus-host disease and colonization with multidrug-resistant organisms. We then address the potential use of both probiotics and dietary prebiotic compounds in targeted modulation of the microbiota intended to improve outcomes in hematologic diseases. With each type of therapy, we highlight the role that abnormal, or dysbiotic, microbiota play in disease, treatment efficacy, and toxicity and evaluate their potential promise as emerging strategies for microbiota manipulation in patients with hematologic malignancies and in those undergoing HSCT.

Massimo Conese, Fiorentina Ascenzioni, A. Christopher Boyd, Charles Coutelle, Ida De Fino, Stefaan De Smedt, Joanna Rejman, Joseph Rosenecker, Dirk Schindelhauer, Bob J. Scholte
2011 Journal of Cystic Fibrosis  
Clinical trials in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients established proof-of-principle for transfer of the wild-type cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene to airway epithelial cells. However, the limited efficacy of gene transfer vectors as well as extra-and intracellular barriers have prevented the development of a gene therapy-based treatment for CF. Here, we review the use of new viral and nonviral gene therapy vectors, as well as human artificial chromosomes, to overcome

Prenatal gene therapy is a potential alternative to gene transfer to fully developed lungs. However, unresolved issues, including the possibility of adverse effects on pre-and postnatal development, the risk of initiating oncogenic or degenerative processes and germ line transmission require further investigation. Finally, we discuss the therapeutic potential of stem cells for CF lung disease.

2000 Archives of General Psychiatry  
Pharmacological and postmortem investigations suggest that patients with major depressive disorder have alterations in function or density of brain serotonin 1A (5-HT 1A ) receptors. The aim of the present study was to use positron emission tomography with the selective 5-HT 1A receptor antagonist [ 11 C]WAY-100635 to measure 5-HT 1A receptor binding in depressed patients before and during treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
