    This was conducted on the second group of infected mice. Blood samples from the mice were taken each day. The blood was analyzed with another Surveyor assay to measure CCR5 gene disruption and then western blotting to compare HIV-1 viral RNA loads. A positive result that supports the hypothesis of the CCR5 ZFN-disruption would be bands on the Surveyor nuclease assay that travel further down the gel. This indicates that the mismatch was present and the nuclease correctly excised it from…
