The HIV-Luciferase plasmid encodes a self-inactivating lentiviral construct that was cloned by removing the U6-TATAlox-CMVie-EGFP-TATAlox- WPRE content of pSICO (Ventura et al., 2004), and adding the EF1-alpha promoter, a multiple cloning site (MCS), an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) and Luciferase. A cDNA can be cloned into the MCS (NotI, EcoRI, SmaI, and BamHI sites) to enable bicistronic expression with luciferase. This construct has not been published.

NOTE: Addgene's stock is missing bp 6102-6190 of the depositor's sequence. This deletion may affect some restriction sites, but not plasmid function.

Addgene has sequenced a portion of this plasmid for verification. Click here for the sequencing result.
