Abstract

A fragment of the research project devoted to the development of genetic control of exocytosis is presented in the work, which can further ensure the success of targeted therapy of various diseases, including neurodegenerative ones. For the purpose of specific transfection of intracellular cascades in astrocytes in vivo, we have developed an experimental sample of the reagent kit. The latter represents lentiviral genetic construction LVV-GFAP-Case12. The results of testing of experimental samples of the reagent kit for specific transfection of astroglial cells are presented with the purpose of targeted control of intracellular cascades in vivo on acute slices of different parts of the brain in adult Wistar rats. We selected regions of interest with cells expressing calcium indicator Case12 and responsible for ATP application by >2-fold amplification of fluorescence. We have developed instructions for using the reagent kit for specific transfection of astroglial cells with the purpose of targeted control of intracellular cascades.
