Classification Polyomaviridae, Polyomavirus
Agent Simian virus 40
Strain pUCSV-VA45-54-2Ea [molecular clone of Simian virus 40, SV-40]
Common Name Simian virus 40
contains sequence
Biosafety Level 2
Product Format frozen
Insert contains following restriction sites (from 5'end): BamHI-0.771,7.179; EcoRI-2.686,5.264; KpnI-3.786,4.164; SalI-7.950; SfiI-7.950; XhoI-uncut. Plasmid size: 7950bp (2686bp pUC-19vector+ 5264bp SV40-VA45-54-2 insert).
This variant of SV-40-VA45-54 has an non-archetypal viral regulatory region and was verified by lipofection of EcoRI-linearized plasmid pUCSV-VA45-54-2Ea DNA into ATCC CV-1 cells by the contributor, followed by DNA sequence analysis of the virus stock.
