mRNA: Restoring PTEN and Reducing Tumors without Toxicity

Researchers at Harvard University have successfully developed a new mRNA-based therapeutic approach that targets the PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homologue deleted on chromosome 10) pathway, which contributes to nearly 50% of cases of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. PTEN is a tumor suppressor gene that opposes the action of PI3K, a critical enzyme for anti-apoptotic, pro-tumorigenic Akt activation.

The complexity of cancer requires a multifunctional therapeutic approach. A combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation has been a mainstay for decades, but new approaches are developing rapidly, allowing for more innovative and comprehensive solutions.

Among these new types of therapies, mRNA-based therapies have proven to be especially promising. A growing understanding of the immunogenicity of mRNA has opened the field to both vaccine development (by enhancing its immunogenicity) and protein correction (by diminishing its immunogenicity).

Overall, gene editing (primarily through introduction of DNA) and protein correction (primarily through introduction of mRNA or siRNA)...

Tagging Modified mRNA with TAG (Transglycosylation at Guanosine)

Back in 2013, I wrote a blog titled Modified mRNA Mania, which drew attention to the then nascent development of an entirely new field of therapeutics, based on the use of biosynthetic modified mRNA (mod-RNA). I also wrote a more recent blog about this still trending field, titled Deluge of mRNA...
