AAV as a viral vector for human gene therapy. Generation of recombinant virus

Molecular Biotechnology
F Rolling, R J Samulski

Abstract

Investigation of the adeno-associated virus (AAV) life cycle has enabled the establishment of methodology and identification of critical cis-acting sequences required for recombinant AAV production. Vectors derived from the defective human parvovirus (AAV) have been used for successful gene transfer and expression in many diverse mammalian cell types, such as erythroid, airway epithelium, and neuronal cells. One of the crucial steps in the continued case of AAV as a vector is the development of packaging systems that will allow efficient encapsidation of foreign genes into AAV virions. For this reason, the focus of this article will be generation of recombinant AAV vectors.

CREs: Gene & Cell Therapy

Gene and cell therapy advances have shown promising outcomes for several diseases. The role of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) is crucial in the design of gene therapy vectors. Here is the latest research on CREs in gene and cell therapy.

AAV-based Gene Therapy

Adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based gene therapy is a biological vector that is being researched to be used as a potential therapeutic option. This gene therapy is designed to insert fragments of DNA into targeted cells to help treat diseases, such as hemophilia a. Discover the latest research on AAV-based gene therapy here.

Cell-Type-Specific Viral Vectors
