Viral Service: PHP.eB AAV
As part of our Viral Service, Addgene is producing ready-to-use viral preparations in the PHP.eB serotype from the Viviana Gradinaru laboratory. These viral vector preparations were produced with the pUCmini-iCAP-PHP.eB plasmid (Addgene #103005).
The PHP.eB serotype exhibits efficient transduction of the central nervous system via systemic delivery in adult animals. In vivo studies showed that, compared to PHP.B and AAV9, intravenous injection of PHP.eB AAV led to an increase in both the number of transduced cells and the expression level per cell. In vivo, PHP.eB transduced the majority of neurons in the cortex and striatum, and over 75% of cerebellar Purkinje cells.
As part of our standard viral production, these viral vectors undergo quality control, including AAV titering by SYBR green qPCR, confirmation of the transfer plasmid with PCR, purity assessment by SYPRO Red staining, in vitro and (when possible) in vivo testing, and full sequencing of the final viral vector preparation.
Note on PHPeB tropism and specific mouse lines: Enhanced CNS tropism exhibited by the PHPeB serotype has been reported to occur through the cellular receptor LY6A (DOI 538421). For information on whether the PHPeB serotype will work in your mouse line, see Supplementary Table 3.
