Viral Vector Production

The Genome Editing, Transgenic, and Virus Core (GETV) facility provides lentivirus, adenovirus and adeno-associated virus vector design assistance and production. The Core maintains an inventory of stock plasmids and viral vectors that are available for a nominal fee.

Lentiviral vectors are produced in 293FT cells using a four plasmid system and are replication defective. Lentiviral vectors prepared using this system can be used at BSL2.

Adeno-associated virus 2 (AAV2) is produced in 293 cells and all vectors are purified for distribution. Purity is confirmed by SDS-PAGE and densitometry. A certificate of analysis is available upon request. AAV vectors prepared in this way are suitable for work at biosafety level 1 (BSL1).

Adenoviral vectors are produced in 293AD cells and purified for distribution. Adenoviral vectors prepared using this system can be used at BSL2.
