There are more than 10 serotypes of AAV that have been discovered or designed (AAV1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/PHP.eB/PHP.S/rh10/DJ2-retro). Due to the difference in amino acid sequence and spatial structure of the capsid protein, the recognition and binding of cell surface receptors vary, resulting in different infection efficiency.

The infection efficiency of AAV serotypes of various tissues reported varies between research papers. For target tissues with fewer literature, it is recommended that researchers apply pre-experiment to determine the most ideal serotype.

Each serotype presents its unique tissue-tropism profile. Until now, AAV9, AAVrh10 and newly emerging AAVPHP.B are ideal for systemically delivery or crossing Blood-Brain-Barrier into the brain (basically mouse, AAVPHP.B is not yet examined in Non-Human Primates); AAV DJ is the best choice for in vitro experiment for its broad and high infectiousness in most cell lines.
