Bieniasz, P D; Erlwein, O; Aguzzi, A; Rethwilm, A; McClure, M O (1997). Gene transfer using replication-defective human foamy virus vectors. Virology, 235(1):65-72.

Full text not available from this repository.


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.
