This construct aids in interpretation of experimental design and results by providing a green fluorescent protein marker for monitoring success in transduction of your cells of interest.
TurboGFP™ is an improved variant of the green fluorescent protein copGFP cloned from the copepoda Pontellina plumata. The TurboGFP™ transduction particles are produced from the sequence-verified lentiviral plasmid, pLKO.1-puro-CMV-TurboGFP™ (SHC003). It is a positive control to monitor transduction efficiency.
Self-inactivating replication incompetent viral particles are produced in packaging cells (HEK293T) by co-transfection with compatible packaging plasmids. In addition, the Control Transduction Particles are pseudotyped with an envelope G glycoprotein from Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (VSV-G), allowing transduction of a wide variety of mammalian cells. 200 μl of 106 TU/ml (via p24 titering assay) lentiviral particles are provided as frozen stock.
When conducting experiments using MISSION® shRNA clones, the proper controls should be a key element of your experimental design to allow for accurate interpretation of knockdown results. The MISSION Control Transduction Particles are a critical positive control to monitor transduction efficiency.
