Example text

What is meant by the ``re-engineering of cells''? What a cell does or does not do depends exclusively on which regions of the cell's DNA are active and which are not. Thus, a liver cell expresses liver proteins, while a neuron expresses neuronal proteins. To date, for the treatment of liver disease, drugs can interfere with the function of liver proteins to achieve a desired therapeutic result. They cannot, however, change the kind of proteins expressed by a liver cell. This means that a liver cell cannot be made to express a nonliver protein, even if the gene encoding such a protein will be present (but not expressed) in the liver cell's genome.
