Akt/protein kinase B activation by adenovirus vectors contributes to NFkappaB-dependent CXCL10 expression.


In gene therapy, the innate immune system is a significant barrier to the effective application of adenovirus (Ad) vectors. In kidney epithelium-derived (REC) cells, serotype 5 Ad vectors induce the expression of the chemokine CXCL10 (IP-10), a response that is dependent on NFkappaB. Compared to the parental vector AdLuc, transduction with the RGD-deleted… (More)
