Putting the Protein Back

Rett Syndrome is caused by a lack of MeCP2 protein. Putting the protein back in mice, reverses symptoms. In 2007, Adrian Bird's lab demonstrated that the symptoms of Rett Syndrome could be successfully reversed in mice when protein levels were restored. Putting the protein back in

Approaches to Research

There are several different approaches in terms of research: putting the protein back: this approach aims to recreate the successful reversal experiments on mice, from 2007, which showed that putting the MeCP2┬áprotein back reverses the symptoms of Rett.   improving symptoms: many of the symptoms of Rett could
