Abstract

Primary human melanocytes represent the precursor cells to melanoma and also specific targets of inherited and acquired pigmentation disorders [1-3]. We have developed a new gene transfer technology on primary adult human melanocytes by means of retroviral infection in absence of any toxic polycations currently employed to improve infection efficency (i.e. polybrene) that, as we show experimentally, induce apoptosis and DNA damage. We have cultured primary human melanocytes on a biocompatible nanostructured TiO2 film, obtained by the deposition of a supersonic beam of titania clusters [4-6], coated by retroviral vectors expressing GFP. By means of a "reverse infection" mechanism we achieved 80% of infection in absence of any toxic effect. We expect that such technology will allow efficient and safe genetic manipulation of primary cells for ex-vivo gene therapy.
