Recombinant fowlpox virus for in vitro gene delivery to pancreatic islet tissue

Solomon, M; Ramshaw, Ian; Simeonovic, Charmaine


The feasibility of using avipox virus as a vector for gene delivery to islet tissue (adult islets and fetal proislets) was examined using a recombinant fowlpox virus (FPV) engineered to express the reporter gene LacZ (FPV-LacZ). The efficiency of in vitro transduction was dose-dependent and influenced by the donor species and maturation status of the islet tissue. Reporter gene expression in FPV-LacZ-transduced islet grafts was transient (3-7 days) in immunoincompetent nude mice and was not...[Show more]
