Lentiviral shRNA tester samples (5 × 3 ml of supernatant). Tester samples are a “quick and dirty” product tailored toward screening several shRNA products. Each 3 ml tester prep requires  2.5 μg of purified proviral plasmid DNA. The cost is for a set of five. However, if you do not have 5 constructs, multiple 3 ml preps of the same construct can be performed (2 of one construct and 3 of another, etc.).

Lentivirus (Ready-Made Stock)
Name Map Sequence Species Description
Lenti-GFP
 rHIV Reporter vector that allows experimental model infection conditions to be optimized through a GFP marker. Expression is driven from a CMV promoter. The proviral plasmid is pLLEV-GFP.
Lenti-pGipZ scrambled control rHIV Model control for pGipZ constructs containing an shRNAmir. The construct has a CMV promoter with GFP-IRES-Puro-shRNAmir expression cassette. The proviral plasmid is pGipZ scrambled control (non-silencing). The non-silencing shRNAmir sequence is expressed under the control of the CMV promoter and contains no homology to known mammalian genes.
Lenti 3.7 dsRED
rHIV Model control for pLL3.7 dsRed in which U6 promoter (empty) was used to drive expression of shRNA. The dsRed marker contained in the vector is expressed through a separate CMV promoter downstream of the U6-siRNA expression cassette. The proviral plasmid is pLL 3.7-dsRED.

pLentilox 3.7 GFP

 N/A

rHIV Proviral plasmid used in shRNA construction in which shRNA expression is driven through a U6 promoter. GFP marker contained in the vector is expressed through a separate CMV promoter downstream of the U6-siRNA expression cassette. This allows simultaneous expression of both shRNA and fluorescent marker. GFP is co-integrated into host cell genome with shRNA which allows for convenient tracking of viral uptake in the cell and selection through fluorescent visualization.
pLentilox 3.7 dsRed

N/A
rHIV Proviral plasmid used in shRNA construction in which shRNA expression is driven through a U6 promoter. The dsRed marker contained in the vector is expressed through a separate CMV promoter downstream of the U6-siRNA expression cassette. This allows simultaneous expression of both shRNA and selectable marker. dsRed is co-integrated into host cell genome with shRNA which allows for convenient tracking of viral uptake in the cell and selection through fluorescent visualization.
pLentilox 3.7 Puro
N/A

rHIV Pro-viral plasmid used in shRNA construction containing a puromycin selectable marker. U6 promoter is upstream of CMV-Puromycin expression cassette for simultaneous production of shRNA and selectable marker. Puromycin co-integrates into host cells genome which allows for convenient, stable selection.

pLentilox RSV GFP

N/A

rHIV Transgene expression of this proviral plasmid is driven by an RSV promoter. Vector also contains separate expression cassette for GFP marker utilizing a CMV promoter. GFP is co-integrated into host cell genome and allows for convenient tracking of viral uptake in the cell and selection through fluorescent visualization.
pLentilox RSV2dsRed

N/A
rHIV Transgene expression of this proviral plasmid is driven by an RSV promoter. Vector also contains separate expression cassette for dsRed marker utilizing a CMV promoter. dsRed is co-integrated into host cell genome and allows for convenient tracking of viral uptake in the cell and selection through fluorescent visualization.
pLentilox RSV puro

 N/A
rHIV Transgene expression of this pro-viral plasmid is driven by an RSV promoter. Vector also contains separate expression cassette for puro marker utilizing a CMV promoter. Puro is co-integrated into host cell genome and allows for convenient tracking of viral uptake in the cell and puromycin selection.
pLentilox IRES GFP

 N/A
rHIV Proviral plasmid containing a bicistronic element to express both a transgene and GFP marker driven by one CMV promoter through the use of an IRES element. IRES elements tend not to be as strong as typical promoter expression cassettes and therefore could result in a weaker GFP signal.
 pLentilox IRES Puro

 N/A
rHIV Proviral plasmid containing a bicistronic element to express both a transgene and a puromycin selectable marker driven by one CMV promoter through the use of an IRES element. IRES elements tend not to be as strong as typical promoter expression cassettes and therefore could result in a weaker puromycin response.

pLentilox EV

N/A
rHIV Proviral plasmid in which transgene expression is driven by a CMV promoter. Vector contains no selectable marker. The use of the CMV promoter is ideal for transgene over-expression in a wide range of cell types.

Contains blasticidin resistance gene for stable selection. This plasmid is fully compatible with Vector Core system for custom lentivirus production.
pLenti6/V5-GW/LacZ N/A N/A rHIV This Invitrogen expression system utilizes the Gateway Technology of gene transfer. This vector allows simple subcloning of transgene. Blasticidin resistance gene for stable selection. This plasmid is fully compatible with Vector Core system for custom lentivirus production.
pLentilox EV-GFP
N/A
N/A
