We have cloned the human homologue of the inward rectifier K+ channel from both heart and brain tissue (HHBIRK1). The human clones were identical to each other in their coding regions and were highly homologous to the mouse macrophage (IRK1) channel. The inward rectifier currents from human and mouse clones were characterized using a novel strategy for(More)
The ability to efficiently transduce hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells under serum-free conditions would be desirable for safety and standardization of clinical gene therapy protocols. Using rhesus macaques, we studied the transduction efficiency and engraftment ability of CD34-enriched SCF/G-CSF mobilized progenitor cells (PBSC) transduced with(More)
The transduction efficiencies of immunoselected rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) CD34+ cells and colony- forming progenitor cells based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis were comparable for an amphotropic Moloney murine leukemia virus (MLV) retroviral vector and a retroviral vector derived from the gibbon ape leukemia virus (GaLV) packaging cell(More)
