Product Launch – pOET8!

Updated: Nov 21, 2023

November marks the welcome of OET’s newest product – the pOET8 baculovirus transfer vectors (pOET8.VE1; pOET8.VE2; pOET8.VE3).  Compatible with any baculovirus expression system, including our own flashBACTM technology, the new range of pOET8 vectors are proven to help increase recombinant protein production in insect cells. The increased yield is achieved by allowing co-expression of foreign genes with a vankyrin expression cassette.  This gene cassette comprises the Campoletis sonorensis ichnovirus P-vank-1 protein (Fath-Goodin et al., 2006; Kroemer and Webb, 2006; Steele et al., 2017), an anti-apoptotic protein to help delay cell death following virus infection. Recombinant protein production is further enhanced when these vectors are used in combination with our Super Sf9-insect cells.

Full details including vector maps and multiple cloning sequences can be found on the pOET8  product pages along with our existing range of baculovirus transfer vectors.
