Targeted Delivery of Dopamine Transporter Genes to Dopamine Neurons (MTA)
An adeno-associated virus vector delivering genes controlled by a tyrosine hydroxylase promoter to dopaminergic neurons. Adeno-associated viruses (AAVs) were created to specifically deliver genes to dopaminergic neurons. The proof-of-principle experiment delivered DAt under the control of a tyrosine hydroxylase promoter in a mouse model of dopamine...

Novel Vaccine Antigens for Moraxella Catarrhalis
Several vaccine targets developed to Moraxella catarrhalis, a pathogen found in otitis media (middle ear infection) and chronic pulmonary obstruction disease (COPD). Otitis media (OM), or middle ear infection, is one of the most common reasons for pediatric office visits. An estimated 30 million office visits can be attributed to OM every year. Eighty...

High Throughput Cellular Screening for Development of Post-Transcriptonal Gene Silencing Agents against Arbitrary mRNA Targets
The development of RNA based therapies suffers from a bottleneck in identifying lead candidates that significantly knockdown target RNA in vivo. This is primarily due to the difficulties in predicting the dynamic secondary and tertiary structure of RNA. Currently, researchers begin by using software programs such as MFold and SFold. However, these...
