AAV-2 Bicistronic Expression System (IRES-GFP)

  • Complete Expression System contains packaging plasmids, expression vector and GFP control vector for packaging of recombinant AAV serotype 2
  • pHelper plasmid contains required E2A, E4, and VA RNA adenoviral genes; eliminates the need for a helper adenovirus
  • Cloning capacity of expression vector = 1.7 kb

Product Details

The AAV Helper Free System produces recombinant AAV containing your gene of interest without the need to use a helper adenovirus. The adenoviral genes required for proper AAV packaging are provided in the pHelper plasmid (E2A, E4 and VA RNA) or in the 293 packaging cells (E1).

Production and Transduction of Recombinant AAV. AAV2-GFP was produced by cotransfection of 293AAV cells (Catalog #AAV-100) with pAAV-GFP, pAAV-RC2, and pHelper plasmids. Upon harvesting viral supernatant, 293AD cells (Catalog #AD-100) were infected with AAV2-GFP for 48 hours.
