Background Retroviral vectors are suitable for targeting endothelial cells in the tumour neovasculature because of their intrinsic selectivity for proliferating cells. Previously, we inserted regulatory elements of the endothelial‐specific prepro‐endothelin‐1 (ppET1) promoter in retroviral...
Background The theoretical state diagram for semi‐flexible macromolecules such as DNA predicts that a tightly wound toroid can be a stable structure. Experimentally, toroids roughly 100 nm in diameter are routinely observed for DNA in the presence of multivalent cations at low DNA...
Background Although hundreds of different signal peptides have now been identified, few studies have examined the factors enabling signal peptides to augment secretion of mature proteins. Signal peptides, located at the N‐terminus of nascent secreted proteins, characteristically have three...
Background Pulmonary delivery of gene therapy offers the potential for the treatment of a range of lung conditions, including cystic fibrosis, asthma and lung cancer. Spray‐drying may be used to prepare dry powders for inhalation; however, aerosolisation of such powders is limited, resulting in...
Background Recently, several cancer gene therapy studies have shown that replication‐competent retroviral vectors represent a major improvement over replication‐defective ones in terms of transgene propagation efficiency. However, this positive effect is somewhat spoiled by the increased risk...
Background The baculovirus Autographa californica nucleo‐polyhedrosis virus (AcNPV) is an alternative to other viral vectors for hepatic gene delivery. A barrier to AcNPV being used in vivo is its susceptibility to inactivation by serum complement 1. In vivo utility has only been demonstrated...
Adeno‐associated viral vectors (AAV) can direct long‐term gene expression in post‐mitotic cells. Previous studies have established that long‐term cardiac gene transfer results from intramuscular injection into the heart. Cardiac gene transfer after direct intracoronary delivery of AAV in...
Background The intercellular transport properties of the herpes simplex virus (HSV) protein VP22 have been harnessed to enhance the effectiveness of viral gene transfer. We investigated the intercellular transport and biological effects of VP22 fused with the dominant negative c‐Myb chimera,...
Background The development of any vector system as a gene delivery system requires its optimization in vitro and in vivo. Preliminary studies frequently involve the use of a reporter gene, which allows for the rapid and simple assay of vector function through monitoring expression levels of the...
Background Malignant tumors of the liver are among the most common causes of cancer‐related death throughout the world. Current therapeutic approaches fail to control the disease in most cases. This study seeks to explore the potential utility of transcriptional regulatory sequences of the H19...
