Lentiviral vectors were derived from HIV-1 provirus genome. Lentiviral vectors are a type of retrovirus that can infect both dividing and nondividing cells. Lentiviruses can make long-term stability of foreign genes expression. Lentiviral vectors have been successfully applied to a variety of transgenic animal production. This study uses a three-plasmid lentiviral vector system, it is self-inactivated vector and containing WPRE and other regulatory elements.Fat-1 gene is derived from the Caenorhabditis elegans, and its expression product is a type ofω-3 fatty acid desaturase, It can changeω-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (polyunsaturated fatty acids, PUFAs) intoω-3 PUFAs, improve the level ofω-3 PUFAs.ω-3 PUFAs plays an important role in keeping healthy for human and has significant functions for prevention and treatment for many human illnesses.This study constructed a lentiviral vector that can express Fat-1 and the marker gene EGFP mediated by IRES. It laid the foundation for the subsequent production of transgenic animals.The efficiency of current lentivirus packaging is low and unstable. To improve the efficiency of lentivirus packaging, the influences of state of cell growth and existence on virus packaging were studied; the effects of adherent and suspended 293T cells using calcium phosphate method on packaging lentivirus were compared. The results show that the titer of lentivirus packaged with suspension cells was nearly 3.5 folds higher than that packaged with adherent cells. Moreover, two advantages, higher repeatability and less cell culture time which was at least 24 h shorter, of lentivirus packaging using suspension cells directly were also showed in this study. Therefore, a highly efficient technology of lentivirus packaging using suspended cells was established in our study.Lentivirus were incubated with sperm, then transgenic animals were produced with in vitro fertilization. We did not obtain any positive embryos in mice and cattle with this method. In order to study the influence of fertilization on the infection of embryos by lentivirus, lentivirus of low titer (106 TU / ml) were microinjected into perivitelline spaces of mouse fertilized eggs and oocytes. The positive rate of the group of fertilized eggs was 8.3%, group of oocytes did not have positive embryos. The results show that the process of fertilization did not increase the efficiency of lentivirus infection on mice embryos.In order to study lentiviral vectors in the application of transgenic cows, perivitelline spaces of oocytes, zygotes, 2- to 4-cell embryos, 8- to 16-cell embryos and morulas were microinjected with of 108 TU / ml. Results: groups of 2- to 4-cell embryos and zygotes had not any positive embryos; the positive rate of the group of oocytes was 33.3%; the positive rate of the group of 8- to 16-cell embryos was 2.2%; the positive rate of the group of morula was 71.4%. The results showed that microinjecte lentivirus into perivitelline spaces of oocytes is a very efficient way to produce transgenic cattles. When bovine embryos reach the 8- to 16-cell stage, with the increase of genome transcription activity, the efficiency of lentiviral infection is increasing.
