Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The use of chimeric pseudotyped vectors is a common way to modify the adenoviral tropism by replacing the fiber protein. In this chapter the procedure to generate a chimeric adenovirus pre-stock from a plasmid containing the adenoviral genome is described. Also, the chimeric adenovirus replicative cycle to increase the yield in further productions is determined. Finally, two different protocols, in culture plates and in suspension cultures, to produce the virus at large scale are also detailed. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
