Angiostatin, a proteolytic cleavage product of plasminogen, acts via a selective, yet poorly understood mechanism to potently inhibit angiogenesis (M. S. O'Reilly et al., Cell, 79: 315-328, 1994). Vascular endothelial cell proliferation assays revealed that angiostatin(4.5), a naturally occurring human isoform consisting of plasminogen kringle domains 1-4(More)
We have previously demonstrated recombinant adeno-associated viral (rAAV) transduction of human CD34(+) hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) capable of serial engraftment in vivo. Here we evaluated the capacity of rAAV2 to mediate gene transfer into nondividing, quiescent, primitive CD34(+) cells subdivided on the basis of metabolic, mitotic, and phenotypic(More)
A recombinant AAV2 (rAAV2) vector encoding antisense RNA to HIV-1 transactivating region (TAR) was evaluated for transduction of human cord blood CD34+CD38- hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) capable of serial engraftment in nonobese diabetic (NOD)/severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice. Results revealed long-term multilineage marking in primary and(More)
