Depositor Comments

This plasmid is based on the pUCmini-iCAP-PHP.eB plasmid. Please note that this is a non-standard rep-cap construct. It uses a tTA-TRE amplification loop to increase Capsid expression and AAV production. We find that this system increases AAV titers 1.5-5 fold (Ben Deverman, Bryan Simpson and Paul Patterson, unpublished data). This is a tet-off system, so no dox or tet is needed to turn it on. It can be used like any other rep-cap plasmid. This system should only present a problem if the rAAV genome to be packaged has a tet responsive element that directs expression of a protein that affected the health of the production cells. This work supported by NIH BRAIN Initiative grant UF1MH128336 . The introduction of an XbaI restriction site for ease of cloning introduces a K449R mutation, which does not have an overt effect on vector production or transduction.
