Furthermore, adeno-associated viruses have only limited packaging capacity of up to 4.Next
Scientists are also considering introducing an extra chromosome into cells.

Delivery of or other genetic material by a vector is termed and the infected cells are described as transduced.
The viral genome in the form of is when the virus enters the cell to produce , which is then inserted into the genome at a random position recent findings actually suggest that the insertion of viral DNA is not random but directed to specific active genes and related to genome organisation by the viral.Next
Such a virus can efficiently infect cells but, once the infection has taken place, requires a to provide the missing for production of new.
The viral receptor can be modified to target the virus to a specific kind of cell. A significant problem affecting all virus-based vectors relates to the recognition by the immune system. As more clinical trials take place, we will gain a better understanding of these vectors and their performance in humans.Next
This virus is spread by Ixodes ticks and causes disease similar to WNV see later.
If genes are inserted in the wrong place, then they may not be expressed. The recombinant retroviruses such as the Moloney have the ability to integrate into the host genome in a stable fashion.
Antibodies are a key component of the body's immune response to a virus.
When the immune cells detect the foreign antigen, they mount an immune response against it. Pre-existing against the viral vector could also be present in the patient, rendering the therapy ineffective for that patient. The viral receptor can be modified to target the virus to a specific kind of cell.Next
This is detrimental to predictability and reproducibility of the work conducted using a viral vector and is avoided in their design.
