Researchers design and create donut-shaped proteins from scratch that could one day help yield more potent vaccines, more powerful growth factors to stimulate the growth of cancer-fighting immune cells in stem cell or cord blood transplants, or even a molecular sponge to soak up toxins in the body after poisoning.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center researchers have solved the three-dimensional structure of a newly discovered type of gene-targeting protein shown to be useful as a DNA-targeting molecule for gene correction, gene therapy and gene modification. The findings were published online in Science Express on Jan. 5.
