|Further information:||This lentiviral Gateway destination vector was constructed by cloning the mKate2 coding sequence downstream from the Gateway cassette in pLenti6-V5 puro.
The U3 region of the HIV-1 3' LTR is deleted (ΔU3 or dU3) and facilitates self-inactivation of the HIV-1 5' LTR after transduction to enhance the biosafety of the vector. The element also contains a polyadenylation signal for transcription termination and polyadenylation of mRNA in transduced cells.
The vector contains the psi packaging signal, allowing viral packaging, and the rev response element (RRE) from HIV-1, permitting Rev-dependent nuclear export of unspliced viral mRNA.
Because of the high risk for recombination, plasmid integrity should be checked via PvuII restriction digest after each subcultivation.
Because the risk for recombination after each subcultivation is high, this plasmid is only available under the format of isolated plasmid DNA.
This Gateway destination vector is compatible with the human orfeome library which is also available at BCCM/GeneCorner.
The nucleotide sequence of the mKate2 coding sequence corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number JN418198.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the pLenti6-V5 puro vector corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT009457.1.
Other name of the plasmid is pLenti(puro) mKate2 cl3 bis.
