Pseudotyping of lentiviral vector with novel vesiculovirus envelope glycoproteins derived from Chandipura and Piry viruses
Lentiviral vector system is widely used in gene therapy. Although the envelope glycoprotein of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV-G) has been mostly used to pseudotype lentiviral vectors, its disadvantages such as low transduction levels in certain cell types and sensitivity to inactivation by human complement hinders the usage of VSV-G pseudotyped lentiviral vectors in some cells or its direct in vivo clinical application. Aiming at overcoming some of these drawbacks of VSV-G, we evaluated two novel vesiculovirus envelope glycoproteins from Chandipura virus and Piry virus (CNV-G and PRV-G), as ...
