DDC Gene Mutation Study Advances AADC Deficiency Research

Antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) — short nucleic acid molecules used to modulate protein production — can be used to correct abnormal dopa decarboxylase (DDC) processing in cells from patients with aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) deficiency, a new study reports. The study, “Antisense oligonucleotides modulate dopa decarboxylase function in…
