The nonapoptotic pathway mediating thymidine kinase/ganciclovir toxicity is reduced by signal from adenovirus type 5 early region 4.


Suicide gene therapy using thymidine kinase/ganciclovir (Tk/GCV) yields highly variable results, in vitro and in vivo. To determine the reasons for such variations, we examined cellular mechanisms mediating its cytotoxicity in view of their interaction with adenoviral vectors (Ad) used for gene delivery. Here we report that the presence of adenovirus early… (More)
