DNA Repair Nanorobot
Human DNA is under constant assault from harmful agents such as ultraviolet
sunlight, tobacco smoke and a myriad of chemicals, both natural and man-made.
Because damage can lead to cancer, cell death and mutations, an army of proteins
and enzymes are mobilized into action whenever it occurs. Therefore there is
a system of DNA repair in a cell.
But sometimes DNA-repair process not so efficient, but nanomedicine can radically
improve it.Developments in nanotechnology and nanorobotics are opening up the
prospects for nanomedicine and regenerative medicine where informatics and DNA
computing can become the catalysts enabling health care applications at sub-molecular
or atomic scales.
Cell repair nanorobotics is young developing part of nanomedicine, so next
decade will be decade of DNA reparation using nanotechnology tools.
