Generation of Stable Expression Mammalian Cell Lines Using Lentivirus
Authors:  Neha Tandon, Kaushik N. Thakkar, Edward L LaGory, Yu Liu and Amato J Giaccia, date: 11/05/2018, view: 11915, Q&A: 1
Lentiviruses are used very widely to generate stable expression mammalian cell lines. They are used for both gene down-regulation (by using shRNA) or for gene up-regulation (by using ORF of gene of interest). The technique of generating stable cell ...
