In vivo genome editing

HITI method

Using genome-editing technologies to correct specific mutations represents a potentially transformative new approach for treating genetic disorders. Despite rapid advances in the field of genome editing, it is still unclear whether the long-standing goal of in vivo targeted transgene integration is feasible. 



This is primarily because current tools are inefficient. In particular, current technologies are incapable of targeted gene knock-in in non-dividing cells, the major building blocks of adult tissues. This poses a significant barrier for developing therapeutic strategies to treat a broad range of devastating genetic disorders. 

...

A unique CRISPR/Cas9-based strategy, termed homology-independent targeted insertion (HITI), which enables targeted gene insertion in non-dividing cells, both in vitro and in vivo.
