  • coexpression of the uracil phosphoribosyltransferase Gene with a chimeric human nerve growth factor receptor cytosine deaminase fusion Gene using a single retroviral vector augments cytotoxicity of transduced human t cells exposed to 5 fluorocytosine
    Human Gene Therapy, 2006
    Co-Authors: Tracey A Obrien, Dong T Tuong, Lisa Basso, Scott R. Mcivor, Paul J Orchard

    Abstract:

    Donor T lymphocytes Genetically engineered to express a “suicide Gene” to facilitate negative selection represent a promising strategy for the management of graft-versus-host disease occurring after alloGeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). For this purpose, the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (HSV-tk) Gene, although well studied, has limitations. Cytosine deaminase (CD), an Alternative Gene for negative selection, converts 5-fluorocytosine (5-FC) to the toxic metabolite 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). Sensitivity of cells to 5-FU can be further increased by expression of uracil phosphoribosyltransferase (UPRT), which catalyzes the conversion of 5-FU to 5-fluorouridine monophosphate. By using a chimeric Gene (NG/CD) expressing the truncated human nerve growth factor receptor (NGFR) for positive selection fused to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae CD Gene, we investigated strategies to achieve optimal T cell eradication by CD and UPRT expression, utilizing a single retroviral vector. Three vector strate…
