In gene therapy, which of these non-viral DNA delivery methods requires endocytosis?
Correct Answer: B.Dendrimer delivery.
DNA injection, electroporation, magnetofection and sonoporation are all examples of physical methods used to deliver DNA non-virally. The use of dendrimers on the other hand is considered a chemical method of DNA delivery, whereby cationic dendrimers are temporarily associated with DNA until endocytosis takes place, where DNA can subsequently be released from the dendrimer.
The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is a test administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The test is designed to test your knowledge in three specific sections; physical sciences such as physics and general chemistry, biological sciences and organic chemistry, and verbal reasoning.
How Should I Study?
The MCAT is a rigorous exam that requires months of planning in order to achieve a great score. It is recommended that you begin your study schedule 3 months prior to your exam date. In addition to answering our practice MCAT questions each day, read this article regarding studying for the MCAT from home.
Register for the MCAT.
The first question many people ask is, “when should I take the MCAT?” The general guideline is to take the MCAT the year before you plan to enter medical school. For example, the class of 2018 should take the MCAT sometime before or during the spring/summer of 2013. Your basic science coursework should be complete by this point.
