|Further information:||The construction of this plasmid is described in De Groote et al. (2016).
This is a lentiviral Gateway destination vector, suitable for microRNA expression.
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.
This Gateway destination vector is compatible with the human orfeome library which is also available at BCCM/GeneCorner.
This vector can not be used to express short hairpin RNA (shRNA), which requires an RNA-polymerase III promotor. However, this vector can be used for knock-down experiments if the hairpin is expressed in a micro-RNA context (eg. Block-iT PolII miR RNAi kit).
The nucleotide sequence of the pLenti6-VSV blast vector corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT009458.1.
Other names of the plasmid are pLenti6(bla) -VSV-dest, pLenti6Tag-blast and pLenti6-VSV-blast.
