Production of recombinant adeno-associated viral vectors and use for in vitro and in vivo administration.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Adeno-associated virus is a nonpathogenic human virus that has been developed into a gene-delivery vector due to its high efficiency of infection for many different cell types and its ability to persist and lead to long-term gene expression. This unit describes efficient methods to generate high-titer, research-grade, adenovirus-free recombinant single-stranded and self-complementary adeno-associated virus in various serotypes, along with methods to quantify the viral vectors. Two detailed methods are provided for viral vector injection into rat brain and for histological detection of transgene expression, including lacZ and GFP.
