Scientists learn to 'program' cells

 

PALO ALTO, Calif. (UPI) -- U.S. scientists say they are a step closer to being able to "program" cells to respond to certain conditions and react in a pre-determined manner

Researchers at Stanford University say they have created RNA molecules that could rewire cells to sense certain conditions and respond by making particular proteins, ScienceNews.org reported 

The technique could produce cell-based therapies and cancer-fighting treatments, researchers say

Christina Smolke, a biochemical engineer at Stanford, and her colleagues created RNA molecules that work something like a cellular security system "programmed" to be triggered by only one type of intruder

In this case, they produced RNA molecules than can detect particular proteins and then turn production of another protein on or off in response

These simple programs are just first steps toward what researchers might be able to make cells do in the future, Smolke says
