The pLenti6⁄V5 Directional TOPO® Cloning Kit contains the TOPO®-adapted ViraPower™ lentiviral expression vector, pLenti6⁄V5-D-TOPO® for quick PCR-based cloning and high-level expression of a target gene in dividing and non-dividing mammalian cells. The vector has the CMV promoter for driving high-level, constitutive expression of the target gene and the blasticidin selection marker for stable selection in mammalian cells.

• High efficiency and rapid cloning
• Constitutive gene expression in dividing and non-dividing mammalian cells in vitro or in vivo
• Produces replication-incompetent virus for enhanced biosafety of the system

Key Features
• Directional TOPO® Cloning site for rapid and efficient directional cloning of blunt-end PCR products
• Rouse Sarcoma Virus (RSV) enhancer⁄promoter for Tat-independent production of viral mRNA in the producer cell line
• Modified HIV-1 5’ and 3’ Long Terminal Repeats (LTR) for viral packaging and reverse transcription
• HIV-1 psi (ψ) packaging sequence for viral packaging
• HIV Rev response element (RRE) for Rev-dependent nuclear export of unspliced viral mRNA
• (CMV) immediate early promoter for high-level constitutive expression of the gene of interest in mammalian cells
• C-terminal V5 epitope for detection of the recombinant protein
• Blasticidin (bsd) resistance gene for selection in E. coli and mammalian cells
• Ampicillin resistance gene for selection in E. coli
• pUC origin for high-copy replication and maintenance of the plasmid in E. coli
