Dr. Yoshihiko Fujita "Gene Switch: Asking cells, 'Who Are You?'"

-Researcher's comment
The RNA switch is a one of the promising approach to detect and purify specific cells for medical applications. A complex gene circuit consisted of the RNA switches will work as a logic gate for selecting cells which match multiple conditions, like programming language or electrical circuit. Thus, we think that designing the artificial circuits is not only a scientific challenge but also an important technology for purifying safe transplantable cells from a lot of types of cells generated from iPS cells.
