AAV-DJ Luciferase-eGFP

BPS Bioscience


  • Notes: Biosafety: Recombinant AAV is inherently replication-deficient and not known to cause any human diseases. Additionally, following transduction, AAV vectors exist episomally and do not integrate into or disrupt the host cell's genome. AAV requires the use of a Biosafety Level 1 facility. BPS Bioscience recommends following all local, federal, state, and institutional regulations and using all appropriate safety precautions. Troubleshooting Guide: Visit for detailed troubleshooting instructions. For all further questions, please email Licensing Agreement: The AAV-DJ viruses are covered under several patents, including U.S. Patent Nos. 7,588,772, 8,067,014, 8,574,583, and 8,906,387, as well as corresponding foreign patents applications and patent rights. AAV-DJ is used under a license agreement.

Adeno-Associated Virus-DJ (AAV-DJ) is a synthetic serotype made from eight different wild-type AAV serotypes (AAV2, 4, 5, 8, 9, avian, bovine, and goat AAV) using DNA shuffling. These modifications give the AAV-DJ serotype improved transduction efficiency in vitro and in vivo compared to wild-type serotypes. Consequently, AAV-DJ can infect a broad range of cell types. _x000D_ These AAV particles constitutively express the firefly (Photinus pyralis) luciferase and enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein (eGFP) genes connected via a T2A linker, under the control of a CMV promoter. The T2A self-cleaving peptide (derived from Thosea asigna virus 2A) leads to the efficient cleavage of the transcript, and expression of luciferase and eGFP as two separate proteins.
