Replication defective herpes simplex vector
I need input from our gene mod people here. The replication defective herpes simplex vector appears to be a localized gene mod delivery system. Am I correct in this interpretation? This means that only injected areas would be affected, right? If I am wrong, then the rest of this is not worth reading, but if I am right:
- It would allow me to test the tetra+chromacy mod on one eye. (Not interested if it causes ocular herpes outbreaks)
- It would allow for multiple gene doping combinations. If I remember correctly, there were genes that enhanced slow twitch fibers, some that enhanced fast twitch fibers, etc. This vector should allow the possibility of having bulky muscles in some areas, quick muscles in other areas, and enduring muscles in other areas, right? Example: Beefy facial muscles, enduring calves, slow twitch quads, etc.
- Possibly allow for amazing tattoo work using melanin regulating genes. This would cause dark skin to grow in some areas and lighter skin in other areas. It could be used to make some really cool designs.
- Targeted bone density/lengthening gene modding?
