another mutations question

Post by cellquestion » Fri Oct 09, 2009 3:23 pm

Only answer if you are answering as accurately as possible whenever you answer

If mutations contribute to aging the only way to completely solve etc the issue etc of them contributing to aging would be to replace the genes right (Ie by doing organ transplants, gene therapy- ie homologous recombination gene therapy so as not to lengthen the genome etc etc) (I mean assuming organ transplants gene therapy etc are currently all valid, usable options etc with our current technology etc, even if right now they are not)

What a horribly worded question. Fail.

what exactly are you asking? your question makes little sense

Yes, the gist of gene therapy is to correct the mutated gene.

Technology of correcting and finding the mutated gene (before it can do harm) is not here yet.
