The combination of single-chain Fv fragments as target cell-binding molecules with the phage display technology has led to powerful strategies to obtain scFv molecules applicable for vector targeting in gene therapy. This chapter describes the various methods which have been employed to isolate scFv molecules with the desired binding characteristics and strategies to use these molecules to generate targeted gene therapeutic vehicles.
