A drug developed to treat genetic diseases such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis may need a radical rethink.
Flavr Savr, also known as CGN-89564, a genetically modified tomato, was the first commercially grown genetically engineered food to be granted a license for human consumption. It was produced by the Californian company Calgene, and submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1992. On May 18, 1994, the FDA completed its evaluation of the Flavr Savr tomato and the usage of APH(3’)II, concluding that the tomato “is as safe as tomatoes bred by conventional means” and “that the...
Roundup Ready Soybean, GTS 40-3-2, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant soybeans created by Monsanto. Glyphosate kills plants by obstructing the synthesis of the essential amino acids phenylaline, tyrosine, and tryptophan. These amino acids are referred to as “essential” due to the fact that animals cannot make them; only plants and micro-organisms can make them and animals acquire them by consuming plants. Plants and microorganisms make these amino acids with...
A Knockout Mouse is a genetically engineered mouse in which researchers have inactivated, or “knocked out,” an existing gene by replacing it or disrupting it with an artificial piece of DNA. The loss of gene activity frequently causes changes in a mouse’s phenotype, which includes appearance, behavior, or other apparent and biochemical characteristics. Knockout mice are significant animal models for studying the role of genes which have been sequenced but whose functions haven’t...
A Blue Rose is a flower of the genus Rosa belonging to the family Rosaceae that presents blue to violet pigmentation instead of the more common white, red, or yellow coloration. Blue roses are frequently portrayed in literature and art as a symbol of love and prosperity to those who seek it, but don’t exist in nature as a result of genetic limitations. In 2004, researchers utilized genetic modification to produce roses that contain the blue pigment delphinidin. After 13 years of...
