AAV9 Luciferase

BPS Bioscience


Adeno-Associated Virus serotype 9 (AAV9) is one of the most promising serotypes for gene therapy applications. AAV9 transduces a wide range of tissue types, including cardiac and skeletal muscle, liver, pancreas, and eye tissue. AAV8 and AAV9 have recently been used to correct disease-causing mutations and improve muscle function in mouse models of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. AAV9 has significantly lower seroprevalence in the human population than other AAV serotypes, making AAV9 a desirable candidate for therapeutic applications.          These AAV particles constitutively express the firefly (Photinus pyralis) luciferase gene under the control of a CMV promoter. AAV transduction efficiency can easily be verified by measurement of luciferase activity.


  • Category: AAV virus
  • Subcategory: Cell Signaling Pathway
  • Lead Time: 1-2 DAYS
  • Applications: Use as a positive control for transduction Optimize transduction assays and track protein expression over time
  • Formulation: AAV was produced in HEK293-AAV cells and is supplied in PBS-MK (PBS Magnesium-Potassium) buffer containing 0.01% Pluronic F68.
  • 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.
