Abstract:Recombinant AAV mediates efficient gene transfer to RPE and ganglion cells, and to photoreceptor cells under certain conditions. Persistence of transgene expression is of long duration and without apparent histopathology. The greater stability, lower cytopathicity, and the ability to transduce retinal ganglion cells are three distinct features of the AAV vector compared to current adenovirus-based vectors.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
