The goal of most gene therapies is to insert a healthy copy of a gene into the genome.  Besides CRISPR, techniques for integrating DNA into the genome do not target that DNA to a particular genomic location and thus different cells end up with the DNA sequence in different positions. C.     Over time the expression of an integrated gene will change, usually decreasing.  Describe how you think the cell downregulates expression of an integrated gene.
