An engineered novel lentivector specifically transducing dendritic cells and eliciting robust HBV-specific CTL response by upregulating autophagy in T cells.
Dendritic cells (DCs) play a predominant function in initiating cell immune responses. Right here we generated a DC-targeting lentiviral vector (LVDC-UbHBcAg-LIGHT) and evaluated its capability to elicit HBV-specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) responses. DC-SIGN-mediated particular transduction utilizing this assemble was confirmed in DC-SIGN-expressing 293T cells and ex vivo-cultured bone marrow cells. LVDC-UbHBcAg-LIGHT-loaded DCs have been…Read More
