UI researchers use CRISPR engineering to prevent certain glaucoma in mice

A University of Iowa–led team of researchers has used the gene editing method called CRISPR-Cas9 to disrupt a mutant gene that is responsible for some forms of glaucoma, one of the most common causes of irreversible blindness. The study involves the elimination of the mutated myocilin protein from a mouse model of human glaucoma and […]
