pBS-G-ФT Plasmid

The plasmid pBS-G-ΦT encodes the vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) glycoprotein (G) from the Indiana serotype expressed from the bacteriophage T7 promoter in pBS, which has been further modified to contain a T7 terminator sequence cloned between the SacII and SacI restriction sites in pBS-SK+ [1]. The plasmid is used as part of the VSV reverse genetics system to recover replication-restricted ΔG-VSV from plasmids [2]. The recovery of ΔG-VSV involves the transfection of cells that have been infected with recombinant vaccinia expressing bacteriophage T7 RNA polymerase (vvT7) with 5 different plasmids; one which expresses the ΔG-VSV antigenomic-sense (or positive-sense) RNA and 4 other plasmids that encode individually the VSV N, P, G and L proteins, all of which are under control of T7 promoters.
