|Further information:||This lentiviral expression vector was constructed by cloning the human FTH1 coding sequence from pENTR223-hFTH1 into the pLenti6/V5-DEST vector via Gateway recombination.
This is a lentiviral Gateway expression vector designed for ViraPower II lentiviral-based expression of the human FTH1 gene in dividing and non-dividing mammalian cells.
The ViraPowerLentiviral Expression System (Invitrogen) possesses features which enhance its biosafety while allowing high-level gene expression in a wider range of cell types than traditional retroviral systems.
The vector carries the human CMV-IE promoter for driving constitutive expression of the human FTH1 gene. Although highly active in most mammalian cell lines, activity of the viral promoter can be down-regulated in some cell lines due to methylation, histone deacetylation, or both.
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 the risk for recombination after each subcultivation is high, this plasmid is only available under the format of isolated plasmid DNA.
The nucleotide sequence of the human FTH1 coding sequence corresponds with the Genbank accession number NM_002032.2.
Other name of the plasmid is pLenti6c-V5-FTH1.
