viral transduction

viral transduction

Gene therapy A method of gene insertion in which a modified virus infects a cell of interest, introducing viral genome containing the foreign genes. Cf Physical transfection.

[137] tested a variety of polycations and determined that, depending on the specifics of the cell population, no cation can be claimed to be superior at enhancing viral transduction, and studies should test multiple variants to determine optimal performance.
While viral transduction and electroporation-based approaches have resulted in high efficiencies of gene expression in NK cells, these methods can be laborious and require specialized equipment and laboratory setups.
Moreover, as E1B-55K is also involved in the translocation of nuclear viral mRNA to ribosomes and ONYX-015 is E1B-55K-null, the replicative potential is attenuated and indeed viral transduction in glioma models has not shown any substantial amount of oncolytic activity47,49.
Viral transduction dynamics and viral titre prediction: the MATLAB R2012a software (MathWorks, Natick, MA, USA) was used to predict the viral transduction dynamics (f[(x).sub.td]) and viral titre (f[(x).sub.vt]) for the analysed plasmids.
The analysis of the viral transduction rates revealed that both untreated or DMSO-treated cells experienced minor decreases in transduction rates for the pMD9-based plasmids with different cPPT modifications in comparison to pMD9 and pWPXL controls (Figures 4(a) and 4(b)).
Using a technique called viral transduction, they then introduced DNA that codes for sodium channels into the ESC-derived OPCs.
The scientists used immortalised liver cells without the ability to perform metabolism, and applied viral transduction to "infect" the cells with viruses that have specific drug-metabolising genes leading to the expression of drug-metabolising enzymes.
