Thérapie génique : réguler l’expression d’un gène grâce à un régime alimentaire particulier

Des recherches fondamentales dans le domaine de la nutrition ont permis de mettre au point, chez l’animal, un système de régulation de l’expression d’un gène grâce à un régime alimentaire particulier qui ouvre des applications thérapeutiques originales. Développé par une équipe de l’Unité de nutrition humaine (Inra, Université d’Auvergne), en collaboration avec des chercheurs de l’Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière (CNRS, Inserm, AP-HP, UPMC), cet outil permet de contrôler l’expression d’une protéine thérapeutique et de la diffuser localement de manière intermittente en fonction des besoins. Ces résultats viennent d’être publiés dans la revue Nature Biotechnology.

Gene Drives on the Horizon: Advancing Science, Navigating Uncertainty, and Aligning Research with Public Values

Research on gene drive systems is rapidly advancing. Many proposed applications of gene drive research aim to solve environmental and public health challenges, including the reduction of poverty and the burden of vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue, which disproportionately impact low and middle income countries. However, due to their intrinsic qualities of rapid spread and irreversibility, gene drive systems raise many questions with respect to their safety relative to public and environmental health. Because gene drive systems are designed to alter the environments we share in ways that will be hard to anticipate and impossible to completely roll back, questions about the ethics surrounding use of this research are complex and will require very careful exploration.

New developments in engineering plant metabolic pathways

A review of the current state-of-the-art in plant engineering. The publication presents how:
- Plant metabolic pathways can be reconstituted in heterologous hosts.
- Metabolism in crop plants can be engineered to improve the production of biofuels.
- Crops can be engineered to express metabolic pathways that improve human health.

Retour sur la biologie de synthèse

Sarah Dirren de la RTS vous propose un dossier sur la biologie de synthèse ou comment créer du vivant à partir d’éléments présents dans la nature. L’idée de la biologie de synthèse est de concevoir et de construire de nouveaux systèmes ou de nouvelles fonctions biologiques plus performants que ceux existant dans la nature.

Genetically Engineered Crops: Experiences and Prospects

U.S. national academies find biotech crops not harmful to human health and the environment. They conclude that foods from GE crops are as safe as foods from non-GE crops and and that the U.S. regulatory system needs to assess crop varieties based on their individual characteristics, not the way they are produced.
