The adeno-associated virus (AAV) genome can be stably integrated into the AAVS1 region of human chromosome 19 (19q13.4-qter) with the assistance of Rep68/78 protein. In the current models of AAV integration in a locus-specific manner, the foreign genes were randomly inserted into the AAVS1 region, which contains several functional genes. As random integration in this region may lead to insertion mutations and disrupt normal gene expression or critical signaling pathways of the host cells, it is necessary to find a precise insertion site in the AAVS1 region. Homologous recombination is the most accurate and versatile mechanism for such site-specific integration. To investigate site-specific integration in the AAVS1 region, a targeted vector containing two homologous arms derived from AAVS1 and a reporter gene was transfected into HeLa cells with or without Rep68/78 mRNA. The results indicated that transient expression of Rep68/78 in HeLa cells improved integration of the gene of interest at the AAVS1 locus in a site-specific manner. Compared with locus-specific integration reported in previous studies, site-specific integration may minimize the risk associated with random DNA integration in the AAVS1 region, which might be helpful for gene therapy.
