DNA stamper injections using nanoscale-tipped wire arrays
Press Releases | March 15, 2022
A convenient and powerful tool in neuronal research
Toyohashi University of Technology research team led by Prof. Rika Numano and Prof. Takeshi Kawano showed DNA stamper injections can be performed delivering biomolecules into live neuronal cells within brain tissues ex vivo and in vivo using nanoscale-tipped wire (NTW) arrays to genetically modify and restore cell function in the brain.
These NTW array injections followed the exploration of pacemaker cells in the brain slice of central clock with knockdown function using short-hairpin RNA injection of an indispensable clock gene in circadian rhythms.
