• mice
  • Here we report for the first time that a chimeric fusion peptide (B-MSP-PMO) consisting of a muscle-targeting heptapeptide (MSP) fused to an arginine-rich cell-penetrating peptide (B-peptide) and conjugated to a morpholino oligomer (PMO) AO directs highly efficient systemic dystrophin splice correction in mdx mice.

  • functional
  • With very low systemic doses, we demonstrate that B-MSP-PMO restores high-level, uniform dystrophin protein expression in multiple peripheral muscle groups, yielding functional correction and improvement of the mdx dystrophic phenotype. (ox.ac.uk)
