Other products that specifically influence the functioning of the genetic material
Other products that specifically influence the functioning of the genetic material are products that do not fall in one of the categories GTMPs, CRISPR-CAS, antisense oligonucleotides or RNA interference, but are still able to specifically and intentionally influence the functioning of DNA and RNA.
Examples are zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) or products (including small molecules) that influence DNA or RNA, e.g. via binding to Cap Binding complexes.
Products that have a general effect on for example DNA methylation or histon modification (not acting via DNA or RNA hybridization), do not fall in this category and are not reviewed by CCMO but by one of the accredited MRECs instead.
