In selecting target cells to receive a transferred gene in gene therapy, what factors do you think would have to be taken into account?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The factors that should be taken into account while selecting the target cells to receive a transferred gene in gene therapy.

Introduction: Gene therapy is a recombinant DNA based method involved in transferring of cloned genes into somatic cells to treat a genetic disorder. It is considered as a treatment options for disorders that are caused by mutation in single genes.

Explanation of Solution

The factors to be taken into account while selecting target cells that receive transferred gene in gene therapy are as follows:

  • • The chemical methods of DNA transfer across the membrane of the cell and viral vectors.
  • • The number of copy of genes that should be transferred to the target cell...
