Inserting cDNA into a retroviral vector?..

... then insert the cDNA of the gene into the vector, and later insert that vector into dividing cells of another organism? Theoretically, it's the retroviral cDNA that inserts itself into the host chromosomes, so maybe this would work?

Inserting cDNA into a retroviral vector?..

Hello everyone. Let's say I have a retroviral vector and its genome consists of single stranded RNA. Is it possible to insert double stranded cDNA into this vector? If yes, what are the processes that need to happen in order to make this occur? ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

... phylogeny. This assumption is violated in instances of horizontal transfer , e.g. in transformation of a bacterium by a DNA plasmid, or in retroviral insertion into a host's genome. During the early evolution of life, before the advent of multicellular organisms, horizontal transfer was ...

Cluster of Differenciation(CD) replacement... Immunology

... but that is an extremely laborous and costly process. In theory, you could deliver the gamma/delta genes to a normal alpha/beta CD4+ T cell with a retroviral vector and maybe even silence the alpha/beta genes with siRNA or similar. For more simple gamma/delta receptor studies you can genetically ...

genetic engineering

... usually engineer the egg or cells at the early embryonal stage. Alternatively, if you want to make the target tissue or some random cells glow, retroviral delivery systems or even gene guns and such may do the trick. Then you can use adult animals. Animals that carry the new DNA in their every ...
