Gold Nanoparticles a Safe Courier for Gene Editing Therapies?

As gold ions clump together to form nanoparticles, electrons on their surface reflect light at a different wavelength -- hence the red hue. The lab tube in the foreground contains gold ions before they form nanoparticles and loaded with gene editing tools. Credit: Robert Hood, Fred Hutch News Service.

Widely Available Antibiotics Could Be Used to Treat “Superbug” MRSA

News

Some MRSA infections could be tackled using widely-available antibiotics, suggests new research. A team of scientists used genome sequencing technology to identify which genes make MRSA susceptible to a previously defined combination of drugs. They identified a number of mutations centered around a protein known as a penicillin-binding protein 2a or PBP2a.
