Cre Recombinase adenovirus

Name: Ad-Cre-GFP
Cat. No. 1700
Category: Pre-packaged Ready-to-use Adenovirus
Gene Name: Cre
Gene Alias:
Viral Backbone: human Adenovirus Type5 (dE1/E3)


Cre Recombinase is a Type I topoisomerase from bacteriophage P1 that catalyzes the site-specific recombination of DNA between loxP sites. loxP is a 34 bp DNA sequence at which confers directionality. Cre recombinase is used as a tool to genetically modify genes, such as to delete a segment of DNA flanked by LoxP sites in cells or experimental animals.

This adenovirus expresses both Cre recombinase and GFP as marker. Cre and GFP are driven by 2 separate promoters.
