Thus, the use of CNTs can be far simpler and less laborious when compared to other techniques to produce GMAs. 1 Introduction Genetic engineering aims to intentionally remove, modify or add genes to DNA molecule in order to improve the development of new therapies and new disease models; to study the mammalian gene function; and to generate genetically modified organisms (GMO) and genetically modified animals (GMA) [1, 2].

These hybrid molecules open up a new perspective for the modification of the genome of the domestic species. 1 Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) as a Gene Transfer Agent Interaction of CNT and DNA Carbon nanotube (CNT) can be easily bound to DNA by non-covalent attachment [86]. The DNA strand spontaneously wraps around the CNT [87, 88]. Gao and Kong [89], using molecular modeling, found that DNA molecules can be 3 Carbon Nanotubes as a DNA Delivery … 41 encapsulated within or around the CNT. The nucleotide bases interact with the CNT by hydrophobic interactions.
