Can CMV promoter be used as transgene vector - (Mar/22/2007 )
Recently, I am constructing a transgene vector for mice microinjection.
I don't know whether CMV promoter can be used?
Thanks a lot
it depends if CMV promoter works in the specific cell type or not.
CMV promoter gets methylated and expression shuts down. I advise staying away from this promoter unless you want short-term expression.
