Platinum retroviral expression complete systems

The platinum retroviral expression systems from Cell Biolabs have been optimised to produce retroviruses with higher titers for superior infection of a variety of cell types. These complete expression systems contain a packaging cell, a cloning/expression vector and a GFP reporter plasmid, and yield high titres of 107 IFU/ml with transient transfection.

Systems are available to make amphotrophic, ecotropic or pantropic (VSVG-pseudotyped) retrovirus, each of which are designed to infect cells of a certain species:

  Amphotropic Ecotropic Pantropic
Human +++ N.S. +++
Mouse +++ +++ +++
Rat +++ +++ +++
Monkey +++ N.S. +++
Cat +++ N.S. +++
Dog +++ N.S. +++
Hamster + N.S. +++
Bird N.S. N.S. +++
Fish N.S. N.S. +++
Frog N.S. N.S. +++
Insect N.S. N.S. +++
Mollusc N.S. N.S. +++

N.S. = not suitable

Benefits of using the platinum retroviral expression complete systems
• High titer - 1 x 107 IFU/mL by transient transfection
• Longer stability compared to conventional lines
• High-yield protein expression compared to conventional lines
• Large cloning capacity - 4.4 kb for pMXs-Puro expression vector

Please note: Platinum Retroviral Expression Systems are available for sale to academic, government and non-profit research laboratories. All other purchasers require a commercial license for all fields including research use
