General description

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.

We previously determined that cancer-stromal interaction was a direct route to tumor cell heterogeneity progression, since cancer-stromal cell fusion in coculture resulted in the creation of heterogeneous clones of fusion hybrid progeny. In this report, we modified the cancer-stromal coculture...
