Retroviral Expression Systems for Stem Cells

Retroviral Expression Systems for Stem Cells

Our Platinum Retroviral Expression Systems contain expression vectors that have been optimized for superior infection of stem cells. These complete expression systems contain a packaging cell, an optimized cloning/expression vector, and a GFP reporter plasmid. Our Pantropic Expression Systems also include a VSVG envelope vector.

Average titers achieved with Platinum Retroviral Expression Systems are 10^7 IFU/mL with transient transfection. Systems are available to make amphotropic, ecotropic, or pantropic (VSVG-pseudotyped) retrovirus, each of which are designed to infect cells of certain species:

  Amphotropic Ecotropic Pantropic
Human +++ N.S. +++
Mouse +++ +++ +++
Rat +++ +++ +++
Monkey +++ N.S. +++
Cat +++ N.S. +++
Dog +++ N.S. +++
Hamster + N.S. +++
Bird N.S. N.S. +++
Fish N.S. N.S. +++
Frog N.S. N.S. +++
Insect N.S. N.S. +++
Mollusk N.S. N.S. +++

N.S. = Not Suitable

NOTE: Platinum Retroviral Expression Systems are available for sale to academic, government and non-profit research laboratories. All other purchasers require a commercial license for all fields including research use. Please contact our Business Development department for license information.
