I think that the gene will be alright, but I'm sure there'll be something happend when it comes to the DNA replication. The gene will shout, "HEY !!! WHERE ARE YOU TOPOISOMERASES ?!?"...
Q: Why are chemists great for solving problems?

No uncoiling---No mRNA---No protein---No gene expression----Some phisiochemical problem----Adverse or potentialy weaker phisiology.
