VVC-U of Iowa-AAV Kit Bac

Serotype Kit-CMVeGFP Baculovirus Produced

  • $385.00

25ul each of CMVeGFP with the following serotypes: 2/1, 2/2, 2/4, 2/6, 2/8, 2/9.

The Viral Vector Core can produce rAAV via the Baculovirus system (Bac) in Sf9 insect cells from Robert Kotin or in transiently-transfected human HEK293 cells (3X). Vector production platforms have implications for vector binding, expression, trafficking, stability, and immunogenicity due to differences in post translational modifications. We recommend controls from the same system as custom vectors. Order human HEK293 (3X) controls if starting a new project or unsure.
