17:44 ScienceDaily.comNew blood test can detect rejection by antibodies after kidney transplant

A group of scientists has found a biomarker that can identify patients with symptoms of kidney rejection symptoms after a transplant as a result of antibodies. The identification can be done through a simple blood test and at an early stage. It is the first known biomarker for rejection by antibodies. The researchers hope that the test can be further developed quickly for use in the hospital.

Sangamo Therapeutics, Inc., a genomic medicine company, announced today the publication in Nature Biotechnology of a manuscript by Jeffrey Miller, Ph.D., and colleagues at Sangamo, describing two new strategies for optimizing the specificity of genome editing using zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs). The ability to engineer highly specific gene editing nucleases with little or no detectable activity at unintended genomic sequences is a key safety factor for therapeutic applications. The strategies entail engineering the two key functional regions within the ZFN structure, namely adjusting the binding affinity of the zinc finger array which recognizes DNA, and slowing the catalytic rate of the Fok1 cleavage domain. The two approaches, which are complementary, may be combined to enable near 100% on-target modification with no detectable off-targets. The manuscript, titled "Enhancing gene editing
