CRISPR/Cas9 system: a powerful technology for in vivo and ex vivo gene therapy.


PMID 28534255

Abstract

CRISPR/Cas9 is a versatile genome-editing tool which is widely used for modifying the genome of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms for basic research and applications. An increasing number of reports have demonstrated that CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome editing is a powerful technology for gene therapy. Here, we review the recent advances in CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene therapy in animal models via different strategies and discuss the challenges as well as future prospects.
