Helper Virus-Free Preparation of AAV Particles to Deliver Cre Recombinase

The Cre-lox system is used to introduce deletions, insertions, translocations, and inversions at a specific genomic locus. The system utilizes Cre recombinase, a bacteriophage P1 enzyme that recognizes a short target DNA sequence (loxP site). The AAVpro Helper Free System AAV2-CRE Recombinase is a kit for the preparation of serotype 2 adeno-associated virus (AAV2) viral particles to deliver the Cre recombinase gene cassette to mammalian cells. High-titer AAV2 particles can be prepared without a helper virus. HEK 293T cells are transfected by plasmids encoded in this kit, and AAV Extraction Solution is used for efficient AAV2 particle isolation.

  At-A-Glance   Documents   Images & Data


  • Helper virus-free preparation of high-titer AAV2 particles encoding the Cre recombinase gene under the control of the CMV promoter
  • Enables delivery of the Cre recombinase gene to hard-to-transfect mammalian cells, including proliferating and non-proliferating cells
  • The Cre recombinase protein mediates recombination between loxP sites, allowing gene inversion, translocation, or deletion


  • Genome editing—transduction of target cells containing a floxed DNA sequence with the AAV2-CRE Recombinase viral particles results in recombination between the loxP sites
  • Generating transgenic mice
