codon-improved Cre (iCre) and RFP Adenovirus
By applying the mammalian codon usage to Cre recombinase, expression of Cre is improved in the mammalian cells. This improved Cre (iCre) gene also reduce the high CpG content of the prokaryotic coding sequence, thereby reducing the chances of epigenetic silencing in mammals.
This adenovirus expresses both a codon improved Cre recombinase (iCre), and a RFP protein as fluorescent marker. Cre and RFP are driven by the same CMV promoter and separated by 2A peptides.
