|Further information:||This lentiviral vector was constructed by replacing the blasticidin resistance gene in pLenti6(bla)-tdTomato-V5 with the puromycin resistance gene.
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.
The red fluorescent protein tdTomato was derived from a monomeric mutant of DsRed by several rounds of directed mutagenesis and is detectable by DsRed antibodies.
Because of the high risk for recombination, plasmid integrity should be checked via PvuII restriction digest after each subcultivation.
Other name of the plasmid is pLenti6(puro)-tdTomato-V5 empty ctrl cl.1a.
