Abstract: Significant progress in the application of baculoviral vectors for gene delivery into mammalian cells calls for the development of powerful methods for virus purification and concentration. We report here a novel and efficient method based on membrane chromatography to prepare baculoviral stocks. On a strong cation-exchange membrane unit, baculovirus in insect cell culture supernatants was captured at a flow rate of 3 ml/min and efficiently eluted at the same flow rate with a physiological buffer containing 150 mM NaCl as a desorption reagent. The procedure allowed for a final recovery of 78% of infective viral particles from the original supernatant and 30-fold enrichment. The high purity of the viral preparation was demonstrated by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis analysis. Baculovirus gp64 proteins could be purified by the same method, indicating the importance of the protein in mediating the binding of baculovirus to the cation-exchange membrane. The method developed should be suitable for preparing baculoviral stocks, and probably other gp64-pseudotyped viral vectors, for gene therapy applications. © Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
