I know you're the real deal, KSS. That's why I ask you and Bird questions all the time. I gotta get out there sometime. Looking for an entry on GPL.
"Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is caused by aberrant expression of double homeobox protein 4 (DUX4) gene at chromosome 4q35. To date there is no effective treatment for the disease. In the current study, we have evaluated selected Third Generation Antisense compounds (3GAs) targeted to DUX4 for their effectiveness in knocking-down DUX4 in FSHD myoblasts. In addition, we examined the effects of the treatments on myogenic differentiation of FSHD myoblasts. Multiple 3GA compounds (3GA1-5) showed significant knock-down of DUX4 in the FSHD myoblasts, as examined by quantitative RT-PCR. We evaluated two 3GA candidates (3GA3 and 3GA5) at 4 different concentrations, 2.5 nM, 5nM, 25nM, and 50nM, and observed dose-response effects. One of the 3GA compounds completely knocked-down DUX4 expression at 50nM."
