Depositor Comments

This is an envelope construct and is a part of the FELIX vector system from Nolan lab. The FELIX vector system consists of three plasmids - structural, envelope, and transfer vector - which are cotransfected into 293T cells to produce virus. The structural construct makes Gag-Pol and Rev (some variants also make Vif and A). Any envelope construct can be used for pseudotyping - VSV-G tends to give the highest efficiency and broadest host range. The transfer vector contains the viral LTRs and packaging signal. Any expression cassette (promoter and gene of interest) can be cloned into the vector. Inserts can be up to 8.5kB.
