I was wondering how scientists genetically modify Interleukin for medical use. Where do they source the gene from, what are the steps involved in genetically modifying Interleukin for medical use, how is the gene inserted?

    $\begingroup$ Please take the Tour and read about this site. You need to ask one question at a time and demonstrate that you have done your own research before posting. This sounds as if you are wanting someone else to do your homework. $\endgroup$ – David May 16 at 6:56
  • $\begingroup$ You'll need to clarify your question to receive a quality answer. Are you asking about gene editing (CRISPR-Cas9, lentivirus transfection, etc.)? Are you talking about immunotherapies (mAbs, pAbs) that alter different IL functions? $\endgroup$ – Bruce Kirkpatrick May 16 at 22:11
  • $\begingroup$ What do you mean by "where do they source the gene from" and "how is the gene inserted?" These questions suggest genetic engineering: you'll be looking for basic science research like this 2010 Nature paper or translational research like this 1990s NEJM article to answer them. $\endgroup$ – Bruce Kirkpatrick May 16 at 22:11
