Retroviral Cloning and Expression Plasmids

Retroviral Controls

Our Retroviral Cloning and Expression Vectors allow you to clone your gene of interest and subsequently transfect into a retroviral packaging cell or co-transfect with other packaging plasmids into 293T or 293RTV cells to produce a recombinant MMLV-based retrovirus.

We offer a variety of vector backbones designed for use in infection of certain cell types:

  • pMXs and pBABE vectors are suitable for general gene expression in various cells
  • pMCs vectors are particularly useful for infection of ES and EC cells
  • pMYs vectors are excellent for transducing hematopoietic stem cells and progenitors
