- In this study, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) was coupled to baculovirus to regulate transduction efficiency of baculovirus in
vitro and in vivo. The degree of pegylation in virions was measured by the loss of free amines via a fluorescamine-based assay.
The efficiency of green fluorescent protein (GFP) expression was used to monitor transduction efficiency. As the results, the
transduction efficiency in pegylated baculovirus was decreased with an increase of pegylation in baculovirus in vitro and in
vivo. Interestingly, the transduction efficiency of the pegylated baculovirus for the lung and brain was increased compared with
baculovirus itself possibly owing to increased stability of baculovirus by pegylation.
