Stem cells edited for HIV-resistant immune system
HIV Stem cells project by team of Genome haematologists has engineered a particular white blood cell to be HIV resistant after hacking the genome of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). HIV gains entry by attaching itself to a receptor protein on the CD+4 T cell surface known as CCR5. If this protein could be altered, it could potentially stop HIV entering the immune system.
