VirusTech Picture Gallery
As a result from the facility work and engagement in KI´s research and its investigator we present some examples of what can be done with viral particles as gene transfer tools in vivo and in vitro.
The capacity to efficiently transduce nondividing cells, shuttle large genetic payloads, and maintain stable long-term transgene expression are attributes that bring lentiviral vectors to the forefront of gene delivery vehicles for research.
Adeno Associated Viruses (AAVs)
AAV serotypes have shown different tissue tropisms in vivo, improved performance in terms of transduction efficiency, and fewer problems associated with humoral and/or cellular immunity.
The Gammaretrovirus is a sister genus to the lentivirus clade. Like the lentivirus, it is a member of the Orthoretrovirinae subfamily of the retrovirus family, they share common properties but the main difference between these two viruses is that Gammaretroviruses only infect dividing cells.
