Or Perhaps It's the Head that I Found in the Lake

23. BMC '13. Citizen of the World. Cosplayer|Writer|Actor|Artist

Please use either ZE / THEM pronouns for me, thanks! If you like eclectic tumblrs, you've come to the right place. This means I tend to reblog anything that catches my attention, whatever it may be (really). Otherwise all there really is to know about me is that I'm studying to be a neurologist, cook for a living until I earn my medical license, and spend much more time on cosplaying than is decidedly necessary. I also tag all of my posts obsessively, so if you ever need it, I'll gladly give you a list of my tags to tumblr saviour! Also, if you want me to see something, either tag it 'themidnightpost' or just submit it here! For the moment I'm here to procrastinate; and so far, it's working.

#does tumblr's skeleton obsession even have a tag??
#'cause i'm betting just the tag for skeletons would be mostly anatomical stuff

MOTHA FUCKIN SCIENCE

They turned RNA into an anti-virus program. That is amazing.

Let me restate this in case it didn’t sink in the first time

Researchers physically DELETED ALL TRACES of the HIV virus from a human cell.

ALL OF IT.

IF YOU ARE NOT EXCITED ABOUT THAT I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HIV IS

Here’s the link to the journal article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. Yes, I know you need a subscription to access PNAS articles, but if you don’t have a university library to look it up in you can at least see the abstract.  I really like linking back to the actual scientific paper because what the specific research for a project says is important in science reporting.

From the Discussion:

The Cas9/gRNA technology platform is facile, versatile and improving rapidly, and clinical application is anticipated, particularly in the fields of virus infection, genetic diseases, and cancer. Here, we found that LTR-directed gRNA/Cas9 eradicates the HIV-1 genome and effectively immunizes target cells against HIV-1 reactivation and infection with high specificity and efficiency. These properties may provide a viable path toward a permanent or “sterile” HIV-1 cure, and perhaps provide a means to eradicate and vaccinate against other pathogenic viruses. In the current study, we have mainly focused our efforts on myeloid lineage cells (microglia/macrophage), which are the primary cell types that harbor HIV-1 in the brain. However, this proof of concept is certainly applicable to any other cell type, including T-lymphoid cells, astrocytes, and neural stem cells.

They’ve been successful with a model for one type of cell that can be infected with HIV, so to continue the research, other types of cells need to be tested. They need to see if HIV can be removed from those at a high rate of success with little damage to anything that’s not HIV. They also would need to look at different types of HIV since it has various mutations. They are still not close to anything like a clinical trial, but this is still pretty awesome!
