  • Vector backbone
    deleted foamy vector pHSRV13
  • Backbone manufacturer
    R. M. Flugel 1991
  • Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 3800
  • Total vector size (bp) 6357
  • Modifications to backbone
    pNIFV was created by inserting a PstI-EcoRI restriction fragment from pCiPS-NIFV into the cis-acting pol region of pΔΦ. pΔΦ has deletions in the gag, pol, env, and bel1–3 accessory genes, as well as the LTR U3 region, but retains an essential 2.5-kb cis-acting region. In addition, a polylinker region to insert a transgene cassette, and stop codons were introduced into the remaining gag sequences to prevent expression of viral peptides and to eliminate dominant-negative effects of a Gag-Pol fusion protein.
