The ViraPower™ UbC Lentiviral Gateway® Expression Kit includes all the components needed to generate lentivirus, including vector kit, 293FT cell line, and the support kit. This kit combines Invitrogen™’s ViraPower™ Lentiviral and Gateway® technologies to facilitate easy recombination-based cloning and lentiviral-based expression of a target gene in dividing and non-dividing mammalian cells. The pLenti6⁄UbC⁄V5-DEST™ vector has the UbC promoter for driving constitutive but physiological levels of expression of the target gene and the blasticidin selection marker for stable selection in mammalian cells.

• Stable expression
• Long-term experiments
• Accurate titer of functional virus
