TALEN-mediated editing of endogenous T-cell receptors facilitates efficient reprogramming of T lymphocytes by lentiviral gene transfer
Adoptive immunotherapy with T lymphocytes expressing transgenic T-cell receptors (TCRs) has shown significant clinical efficacy in various malignant diseases. However, concurrent expression ofExpand
Automated manufacturing of chimeric antigen receptor T cells for adoptive immunotherapy using CliniMACS prodigy.
Novel cell therapies derived from human T lymphocytes are exhibiting enormous potential in early-phase clinical trials in patients with hematologic malignancies. Ex vivo modification of T cells isExpand
mRNA transfection of a novel TAL effector nuclease (TALEN) facilitates efficient knockout of HIV co-receptor CCR5
Homozygosity for a natural deletion variant of the HIV-coreceptor molecule CCR5, CCR5Δ32, confers resistance toward HIV infection. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation from a CCR5Δ32-homozygous donorExpand
Novel lentiviral vectors with mutated reverse transcriptase for mRNA delivery of TALE nucleases
TAL-effector nucleases (TALENs) are attractive tools for sequence-specific genome modifications, but their delivery still remains problematic. It is well known that the presence of multiple sequenceExpand
Immune checkpoints PVR and PVRL2 are prognostic markers in AML and their blockade represents a new therapeutic option
Immune checkpoints are promising targets in cancer therapy. Recently, poliovirus receptor (PVR) and poliovirus receptor-related 2 (PVRL2) have been identified as novel immune checkpoints. In thisExpand
Digital PCR to assess gene-editing frequencies (GEF-dPCR) mediated by designer nucleases.
Genome editing using designer nucleases such as transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) or clustered regularly interspersed short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-Cas9 nucleases is anExpand
Lentiviral gene ontology (LeGO) vectors equipped with novel drug-selectable fluorescent proteins: new building blocks for cell marking and multi-gene analysis
Vector-encoded fluorescent proteins (FPs) facilitate unambiguous identification or sorting of gene-modified cells by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS). Exploiting this feature, we haveExpand
Efficient gene editing via non-viral delivery of CRISPR-Cas9 system using polymeric and hybrid microcarriers.
CRISPR-Cas9 is a revolutionary genome-editing technology that has enormous potential for the treatment of genetic diseases. However, the lack of efficient and safe, non-viral delivery systems hasExpand
Comparative clonal analysis of reconstitution kinetics after transplantation of hematopoietic stem cells gene marked with a lentiviral SIN or a γ-retroviral LTR vector.
Retroviral gene marking has been used successfully in preclinical and clinical transplantation settings. Highly sensitive techniques for vector insertion-site determination, such as linearExpand
High-affinity SV40 T-antigen binding sites in the human genome.
We describe two different approaches to isolate human genomic sequences possessing high-affinity binding sites for the simian virus 40 (SV40) large T antigen. First, SV40 T antigen was added toExpand
