Gene transfer into stem cells has long been studied as a means by which primitive hematopoietic cells could be characterized and manipulated. While a variety of strategies have been attempted, it still remains relatively difficult to perform direct stem cell analysis. In this review, we examine recent studies using adenovirus-based vectors as a means to achieve high-level gene transfer into primitive hematopoietic cell types.
