Viral Production & Use
Requestor is responsible for compliance with their institution's biosafety regulations. Lentivirus is generally considered BSL-2. AAV is generally considered BSL-1, but may require BSL-2 handling depending on the insert. Biosafety Guide

Viral Quality Control
- Proviral Integration Assay: Lenti-X 293T cells were serially transduced with 12265-LV or a control virus of known titer. 72 hours after transduction cells were harvested, and gDNA extracted and assessed for integrated copies of WPRE.
- PCR confirmation of insert: PCR was carried out with primers targeting CRE and WPRE. The PCR product was visualized on an agarose gel for size confirmation.
Forward Primer: CMV-F TTTACGGCGCTAAGGATGAC
Reverse Primer: WPRE-R CATAGCGTAAAAGGAGCAACA
- Confirmation of Cre activity: Expression of Cre following transduction with 12265-LV was confirmed using a Cre reporter assay.
- Toxicity: Please note that that Cre expression is toxic in some cell lines due to cryptic loxP sites in the genome. If you are unsure how your cell line of interest tolerates Cre expression, consider transducing with a range MOIs or transducing an array of cell lines.
