The Bac-N-Blue™ Linear DNA was specifically designed for recombination with the pBlueBac vectors and pMelBac. Recombinant viruses have a full-length, functional lacZ gene resulting in the production of blue plaques. This allows for easy identification and purification. Bac-N-Blue™ DNA can be used with any polyhedrin promoter-based baculovirus transfer vector. Bac-N-Blue™ DNA is linearized at three sites, one of which is in a gene that is essential for viral propagation (1). This leads to a decrease in non-recombinant virus, making selection and purification of recombinant virus easy. In addition to the viral DNA, the Bac-N-Blue™ Transfection Kit contains Cellfectin® Reagent for high transfection efficiency.
