Fiber-Modified Ad5-RGD Adenovirus Production

Adenoviruses based on serotype 5 (Ad5) have been widely used to deliver transgenes to different cells and tissues. Ad5 cell infection is based on the recognition of Coxsackievirus–adenovirus receptor (CAR) expressed on cell surface, and the fiber is the key mediator for the recognition. Due to the nature of Ad5 infection, cells with no or low CAR expression levels, can not be efficiently infected by Ad5. To overcome this problem, scientists have developed CAR-independent adenoviruses through modifying the Ad5 fiber. RGD (Arg-Gly-Asp) peptide can bind to integrins and has been incorporated into Ad5 fiber to enhance virus infection via CAR-independent pathway. RGD-fiber modified adenoviruses (Ad5-RGD) have been successfully used to transduce several cells and tissues, including macrophages, T cells.

Creative Biogene has over 10 years of experience in the field of adenovirus. Our scientists have established a series of standard operating procedures (SOPs) to produce adenoviruses with high titer, purity, viability and consistency. In addition to classic adenovirus production, we can also produce Ad5-RGD virus by introducing Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) peptide into the HI loop of the Ad5 fiber knob domain.
