Biosafety Level 2

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Insert contains restriction sites from 5'end: BamHI-0.771,7.086; EcoRI-2.686,5.171;KpnI-3.696,4.161; SalI-7.857; SfiI-7.857; XhoI-uncut. The plasmid size = 7857 bp [2686bp(pUC-19 vector) +5171bp(SV40-VA45-54-1insert)].
The variant of SV-40 strain VA-45-54 has an archetypal viral regulatory region and was verified by lipofection of EcoRI-linearized plasmid pUCSV-VA45-54-1Ea DNA into ATCC CV-1 cells by the contributor.
