The InsectSelect™ Kit features the pIZ/V5-His vector for high-level expression in a variety of insect cells. This exceptionally small vector has several features that facilitate expression, analysis, and detection of recombinant protein in insect cells:

• The OpIE2 promoter for constitutive expression
• The Zeocin™ resistance gene for rapid selection of stably transfected cell lines
• C-terminal V5 epitope and polyhistidine (6xHis) sequence for detection with Invitrogen's Anti-V5 Antibody and rapid purification using nickel-chelating resin
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
