When a mutation happens in the first few weeks of embryonic development, it would be expected to be widespread both in an individual's cells and in those of their offspring.
The new capability to delete or replace long stretches of DNA could help researchers better understand disease conditions and ageing.
As per the study, the expression of about eight genes such as the ones responsible for hypoxia, uncontrolled inflammation or cytokine storm, oxidative stress and vitamin K biosynthesis, increased with age, suggesting the higher susceptibility of the elderly to the SARS-CoV-2 virus
