Cell communication important for gene therapy

Findings on cell communication may help fight three genetic diseases

A study by two researchers at Case Western Reserve University's School of Medicine into the communication between the nucleus and cytoplasm of cells may aid in the development of molecular therapies for three genetic diseases -- cystic fibrosis, Huntington's disease, and the fragile X syndrome. Their study found that whether a cell can secrete proteins will profoundly regulate the transfer of genetic information from the nucleus to the cytoplasm and the structure of its nucleus.
