AAV-mediated gene delivery to the enteric nervous system by intracolonic injection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The enteric nervous system of the lower gastrointestinal tract comprises intrinsic neural circuits as well as extrinsic afferent and efferent innervation. The development of strategies for neuronal gene transfer has created new opportunities for functional analysis, circuit mapping, and neuromodulation in the enteric nervous system. Studies of AAV-mediated gene transfer to enteric neurons and dorsal root ganglion neurons (DRG) have provided proofs-of-concept for the utility of AAV vectors for genetic manipulations of the intrinsic and extrinsic components of the enteric nervous system. Here we describe a method for AAV-mediated gene transfer to enteric neurons of the descending colon as well as colon-innervating DRG neurons by injection within the intestinal wall (intracolonic injection).
