Sample text

Inducible expression systems are also useful for protein production in biotechnology. 122,123 Protein manufacture can therefore be enhanced if protein expression can be limited to the period of production. The efficiency, stability, and long-term gene expression of lentiviral vectors makes them a very useful tool for this area of biotechnology. For example, difficult to manufacture proteins such as factor VIII could be produced more cost-effectively by using lentiviral vectors both to decrease the time to generate high-expressing cell clones and to increase protein yield.

The goals for vector modification are typically to increase titers, heighten biosafety, improve transduction efficiency, and promote high and durable gene expression. These goals have been addressed primarily through the inclusion of cis-acting sequences, degeneration and minimization of vector sequences whenever possible, pseudotyping with appropriate envelopes, and application of efficient promoters. As the field progresses, vectors have evolved to exhibit new characteristics, such as efficient dual-gene expression, tissue or cell specificity, episomal gene expression (nonintegrating vectors), or RNA-only expression.
