lentivirus

 [len´tĭ-vi″rus]
any member of a genus of retroviruses that have long incubation periods and cause chronic, progressive, usually fatal diseases in humans and other animals. Species include the types of human immunodeficiency virus.

len·ti·vi·rus

(len'ti-vī'rŭs),
A genus in the family Retroviridae containing five serogroups that reflect the host with which they are associated. Among the primate lentiviruses are human immunodeficiency viruses types 1 and 2.

lentivirus

(lĕn′tĭ-vī′rəs)
n. pl. lentivi·ruses
Any of a group of retroviruses of the genus Lentivirus that cause diseases with a long latent period and a slow, progressive course. HIV is a lentivirus.

To generate the absolute quantitative standard curve for Q-PCR analysis on lentivirus copy number measurement, we used the PCR product of the mouse GUS gene and cloned it with the TA cloning vector (pTA[R] Easy Cloning Kit), which was purchased from Genomics BioSci and Tech (Taipei, Taiwan).
Packaging and proliferating lentivirus with RNA interference (RNAi) technique is a conserved biological response to double-stranded RNA (Hannon, 2002), RNAi is a sequence-specific process that regulates genetic functions and provides defense against virus at the post-transcriptional level in mammalian cells and animals (Song et al., 2003; Jacque et al., 2002).
Thus, the primary receptor for EIAV, Equine Lentivirus Receptor 1 (ELR1) was evaluated using Real Time PCR.
These cultured cortical cells at various times (from 12 to 21 DIV for different tests) were treated with memantine, AP-5, NMDA, PiB, Pin1 shRNA lentivirus particle, control shRNA lentivirus particle, and vehicle as indicated in the figures.
To evaluate the influence of LPS and TREM2 lentivirus on TREM2 expression in microglia, the microglia were pretreated with LPS and/or TREM2 lentivirus before incubation.
To construct stable EML cell lines expressing proinsulin, we cloned INS cDNA into the lentivirus vector pCDH-CMV-MCSEF1-GFP-T2A-Puro, generated pseudoviral particles carrying INS, and transduced EML cells with the lentivirus particles at an ROI of 100:1.

El agente causal es el virus de la artritis-encefalitis viral caprina (AEVC), perteneciente al genero Lentivirus, familia Retroviridae (Peterhans et al., 2004; Leitner et al, 2010).
Then, taking the purified DNA plasmids, they were transfected into human cells through lentiviral packaging to create lentivirus. Human CD4+ T-cells were infected after the lentivirus multiplied.
