Adenovirus

Adenoviral Services

 Service Yield/Amount Internal Price**  External Price
DNA transfection and adenovirus construction (50 μg linearized DNA required) Produces plaque isolated adenoviral clones (up to 12 clones). $902.00 $1,263.00
Plaque Amplification Up to 12, 1 ml amplified clones of adenovirus (primary lysate). $406.00 $568.00
Adenovirus Purification & Expansion  (large scale) Yield varies greatly between constructs; 2.5×1013 particles is typical. When amplifying lysate, please bring 50-100 μl primary lysate if possible. When amplifying purified virus, please bring 10 μl. (Note: for Ad constructs generated by the Vector Core, we archive a small aliquot of primary lysate for further expansion, if requested.) When amplifying purified adenovirus that has been serially propagated it may be wise to isolate viral clones (with a plaque amplification), in order to avoid any possible problems with replication-competent adenovirus. $1634.00 $2,288.00
Standard Adenovirus stock  (1012 particles, includes titer) Each vial contains 0.25 mls of 4×1012 particles/ml. A titer is included. $270.00 $378.00
Plaque Assay (titer) For titer of an adenovirus in PFU/ml (note: the same procedure is used for clonal isolation of possibly replication- competent viruses) $312.00 $437.00
Crude Virus (lysate, 50 ml) Each prep is 50 mls of adenoviral lysate which has been clarified of cell debris, but not purified or concentrated. $211.00 $295.00

Ad5 RSV TGF beta
Transforming growth factor beta (TGF beta) is a multifunctional polypeptide which regulates normal cell growth, development, and tissue remodeling following injury. Abnormalities in TGF beta have been tied to tumorigenicity. E1 and partial E3 deleted, RSV promoter, expressing constituently active transforming growth factor beta.
Ad5 BclxS Recombinant adenovirus also called Ad52bclxs/loxp. Bclx is an anti-apoptotic oncogene that is activated in tumor growth. E1 and partial E3 deleted adenoviral vector, RSV LTR promoter, and expresses human Bclx short (BclxS).

Replication Competent Adenovirus

Name Map Sequence Description

N/A

Standard, replication competent wild-type adenovirus (serotype 5).
Ad5 sub 360
N/A

Replication competent, partial E3 deleted adenovirus with dl309 backbone. Endogenous E1 region with MLP substituted for E1A promoter.
Ad5 dl 7001
N/A
The E3 region of the adenovirus genome encodes at least nine alternatively spliced RNAs and at least seven distinct proteins. In order to better characterize the function of the E3 proteins a mutant adenovirus devoid of all E3 coding sequences was constructed by Wold and colleagues and this deletion mutant was designated dl7001. This virus has a deletion spanning nt 362-3382 of the Ad5 E3 transcription unit. Despite the absence of E3 proteins, dl7001 replicates well in adenoviral packaging cell lines and has proven to be a useful genomic backbone for the derivation of recombinant Ad5 vectors.
