|Parental clone:||pENTR3C-hCARMA2; pLVX-EF1alpha-IRES-mCherry|
|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed by isolating the human CARD14 coding sequence from pENTR3C-hCARMA2 as an EcoRI/XbaI fragment, and cloning it into the pLVX-EF1alpha-IRES-mCherry vector.
pLVX-EF1alpha-hCARMA2-IRES-mCherry is an HIV-1-based, lentiviral expression vector that allows the simultaneous expression of human CARD14 and mCherry in any mammalian cell type, including primary cells.
The plasmid contains all viral processing elements necessary for the production of replication-incompetent lentivirus, as well as elements to improve viral titer and transgene expression. The woodchuck hepatitis virus posttranscriptional regulatory element (WPRE) promotes RNA processing events and enhances nuclear export of viral RNA, leading to increased viral titers from packaging cells. The Rev-response element (RRE) further increases viral titers by enhancing the transport of unspliced viral RNA out of the nucleus and the central polypurine tract/central termination sequence element (cPPT/CTS) creates a central DNA flap during target cell infection that increases nuclear import of the viral genome, resulting in improved vector integration and more efficient transduction.
The nucleotide sequence of the wild type human CARD14 coding sequence corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number AF322642.1.
Other name of the plasmid is pLVX-EF1alpha-hCARMA2-WT-IRES-mCherry.
