Rev cDNA expressing plasmid in which the joined second and third exons of HIV-1 rev are under the transcriptional control of RSV U3 promoter.

Part of the 3rd generation packaging system. Please note that most of Trono lab lentiviral vectors can only be used with the 2nd generation packaging system. See notes for pMDLg/pRRE.

Please note that the full sequence for this plasmid is approximated and not fully verified. Please visit the Trono lab http://tronolab.epfl.ch for cloning strategies, protocols, publications, and more. See LentiWeb http://www.lentiweb.com for discussions on cloning strategies and protocols.

Addgene has sequenced a portion of this plasmid for verification. Full plasmid sequence is available only if provided by the depositing laboratory.
