Nanospears deliver genetic material to cells with pinpoint accuracy

20:00 EDT 13 Mar 2018 | AAAS

(American Chemical Society) In a step toward accelerating the production of new gene therapies, scientists report in ACS Nano that they have developed remote-controlled, needle-like nanospears capable of piercing membrane walls and delivering DNA into selected cells. They say the new technique, which can ferry biological materials to cells with pinpoint accuracy, overcomes many of the existing barriers to effective gene modification.
