The improvement of gene transfer efficiency in growth-arrested cells using human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-derived vectors led to the development of vectors derived from other members of the lentivirus family. Here we report the generation of a lentiviral vector derived from the apathogenic molecular virus clone SIVagm3mc of the simian(More)
We pseudotyped HIV-1 vectors with cytoplasmic tail-truncated envelope glycoproteins of a wild-type (WT) measles virus (MV). The particles entered the lymphatic cells exclusively through the signaling lymphocyte activation molecule (SLAM, CD150), whereas particles pseudotyped with the MV vaccine strain glycoproteins also recognized the ubiquitous membrane(More)
Attenuated measles virus has revealed selective tumor cell killing and is currently tested in clinical trials for the therapy of cancer patients. The amount of infectious particles per dose needed for oncolytic therapy can be more than a million times higher compared to vaccination. This requires highly effective production processes which guarantee the(More)
