Retroviral Plasmids
Name Map Sequence Description

pRET10

N/A

Proviral plasmid used in the construction of recombinant MoMLV. This plasmid contains a bicistronic element to express both a transgene and GFP marker driven by one CMV promoter through the use of an IRES element. The CMV promoter is followed by an intron region flanked with donor and acceptor splicing sites before the multi-splicing site.

pRET6

N/A
Proviral plasmid used in the construction of recombinant MoMLV. This plasmid contains a bicistronic element to express both a transgene and puromycin selectable marker driven by one CMV promoter through the use of an IRES element. The CMV promoter is followed by an intron region flanked with donor and acceptor splicing sites before the multi-splicing site.
