Batten disease may benefit from gene therapy
Batten disease causes problems with a cell's ability to breakdown specific molecules. In a study with dogs, scientists found a new way to deliver replacement genes effective at slowing the development of this rare and fatal childhood neurological disorder.

What happens if DNA cannot fit into the nucleus?
Packaging approximately 1.8 meters of DNA into something as small as a cell nucleus is no easy feat. But what about unpacking it again in order to access it's genes? All this activity requires organization. DNA is dynamic information that requires storage, access and constant maintenance.

Why some genes are frequently read more than others
DNA in our cells is folded into millions of small necklaces — like beads on molecular strings — called nucleosomes. These "necklaces" allow our two-meter strings of DNA to fit into a nucleus only about 0.01 mm in diameter. However, these "necklaces" actually make DNA 'unreadable'. Nucleosomes need to be temporarily "unwound" to allow genes to be copied - read - before a gene can produce a protein.
