Gene repair process

Gene repair process: 1) Stem cell with defective gene. 2) An enzyme that precisely edits DNA and a DNA template for the functional gene sequence are added to the host cell using a viral vector. 3) Cell with functioning gene: The mutated sequence is then replaced with the functional copy to repair the defective gene, resulting in production of the functional protein.
