Abstract

Replication-defective vectors based on an infectious molecular clone of human foamy virus (HFV) were constructed by deletion and replacement of the accessory genes with expression cassettes for puromycin-resistance and beta-glucouronidase. Cell lines which produced in excess of 10(5) helper virus-free transducing units/ml were generated by trans-complementation of the replication defect using a BHK-21-derived cell line expressing the Bel-1 transactivator. Vectors based on the HFV genome may provide useful alternatives to existing retroviral vectors.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
