This chapter discusses the use of molecular bridges to direct infection by retroviral vectors to specific cell types. These bridges include crosslinked antibodies and ligands for specific cell surface receptors as well as GATEs (guided adaptors for virus entry) comprised of soluble retroviral receptors fused to specific ligands or to single chain antibodies.
