Notably, by regulation of appropriate splicing factors, this mechanism termed alternative splicing allows different cell types to produce distinct product(s) from a particular gene. (b) Splice site selection can be blocked artificially using antisense oligonucleotides (ASO), for example (as shown) by targeting an exonic splicing enhancer (ESE) or silencer (ESS) element. 40 Although RNA interference successfully reduced plasma LDL, it is uncertain whether impaired production of chylomicrons might cause liver toxicity and intestinal dysfunction as is sometimes observed in FHBL patients.

Existing receptor binding mechanisms. Native hepatic tropism can be altered by mutating the virus in areas integral to cellular receptor binding. 3 Adenoviral Retargeting by Pseudotyping The adenovirus fiber protein mediates primary binding of adenovirus to its receptor. Vector retargeting may be achieved through the use of chimeric vectors that incorporate the entire fiber or part of the fiber from a different serotype in place of its own. This could potentially ablate the virus’s natural tropism by removal of both the CAR- and heparan sulfate proteoglycan (HSPG)-binding sites and bestow a new tropism upon the vector.
