Plasmid: RCAS BP (B)

Alt Name: RCASBP (B)
Analyze: Sequence
Plasmid Type: Other
Cloning Method: Unknown
Size: 11600
Bacterial Resistance: Ampicillin
The name RCAS stands for Replication-Competent ASLV long terminal repeat (LTR) with a Splice acceptor. The RCAS vectors retain the src splice site and express an inserted gene via a spliced message. These vectors will replicate in appropriately chosen avian cells (usually chicken or quail, although others can be used). In some cases, appropriately chosen RCAS vectors will infect, but will not replicate, in appropriately chosen mammalian cells. Please also see the paper Hughes SH et al., J Virol 1987 Oct; 61(10):3004-3012.
Stable: Unspecified
Constitutive: Unspecified
Viral/Non-Viral: Retroviral
