Lentivirus Gene Engineering Protocols
Maurizio Federico has assembled a panel of outstanding experimenters to detail all the theoretical and practical aspects of lentivirus vector-based gene transfer. The authors demonstrate lentivirus vector production with methods for recovering appropriate producer cells, for producing and titrating lentivirus-containing supernatants, and for detecting transduced cells. The applications of lentivirus vector engineering to different cell types include coverage of lymphocytes, dendritic cells, hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells, mesenchymal stem cells, hippocampal neurons, cardiomyocytes, as well as airway epithelia, corneal cells, and retinal pigment. Also advanced are applications in which genetic material is directly inoculated with lentivirus vectors in such experimental animal models as mouse, rat, and rabbit.

"The materials and methods are written in sufficient detail to allow even inexperienced workers to carry out experiments. However, the book would benefit from the inclusion of a section stating the sources of cloning and packaging plasmids. I would recommend this book to all who are planning to work with lentiviral vectors"-SGM Quarterly
