- Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 13115
Vector typeMammalian Expression, Lentiviral, Cre/Lox
Growth in Bacteria
Growth instructionsUse Stbl3 or HB101 to reduce chance of recombination. Grow at 37C
Copy numberHigh Copy
Gene/Insert nameTERT, HSV1-TK
Alt nameHSV-1 thymidine kinase
SpeciesH. sapiens (human)
MutationLoxP in 3' LTR.
Entrez GeneTERT (a.k.a. CMM9, DKCA2, DKCB4, EST2, PFBMFT1, TCS1, TP2, TRT, hEST2, hTRT)
- Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
- 5′ sequencing primer CMV Fwd for hTert
- 3′ sequencing primer SP6 primer rev for LoxP (Common Sequencing Primers)
CMV promoter is upstream of the bicistronic coding cassette with hTert and HSV1-TK. During reverse transcription U3 region of the 3'LTR, with LoxP, is duplicated; LoxP sites end up flanking the genome of the integrated provirus. Upon expression of Cre, provirus is excised.
