OBJECTIVE: To investigate gene-therapy for human hepatocellular carcinoma with adenovirus vectors by double suicide gene CD/TK.

METHODS: Double suicide gene CD/TK was liberated from eukaryotic vectors pCEA-CD/TK and subcloned into shuttle vectors, and the transfer plasmid pAdtrack-CMV-CD/TK was formed after linearizing with Pac 1. It was recombinated with pAdeasy-1 in bacteria BJ5183. The identified adenovirus plasmid was digested by Pac1 and was transfected into 293 cells to pack the adenoviruses. After PCR determination, its titre was measured, and the infection rate and efficacy were tested in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.

RESULTS: pAdtrack-CMV-CD/TK and pAd-CD/TK were tested by endonuclease digestion. Ad-CD/TK was produced in 293 cells, and the human hepatocellular carcinoma cells (SMMC7721) infected by Ad-CD/TK were killed after 5-FC was used, and bystander effects were observed.

CONCLUSION: Recombinant adenoviruses with CD/TK fusion suicide gene have a high infection rate and efficacy for human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
