Abstract

Froelich and colleagues report that pseudotyping lentiviral vectors (LVs) with envelope glycoproteins from the Aura virus alphavirus results in LVs that use C-type lectins such as DC-SIGN as attachment factors. These pseudotyped LVs exhibit marked preferential transduction of DC-SIGN receptor-expressing dendritic cells (DCs) over other cell types, highlighting their potential for genetically modifying DCs.
