Adeno-Associated Viruses (AAV)

Adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors are currently among the most frequently used viral vectors for gene therapy. AAV is an ideal virus to use as the vehicle for gene transfer because:

  • AAV is a simple, easily manipulated virus
  • AAV can deliver genes to both dividing and non-dividing cells
  • AAV can deliver genes to a wide variety of tissue types from muscle to brain
  • AAV has never been shown to cause disease
  • AAV elicits only weak immunologic responses
  • AAV allows expression of proteins in the host cells for long periods of time

Welgen currently offers AAV pre-made control and services (conventional or double-stranded, also called self complementary) for AAV2, AAV5, AAV8, AAV9 and AAV-DJ serotypes.
