- High-titer AAV2 particles encoding the lacZ reporter gene under the control of the CMV promoter can be prepared without a helper virus
- Enables delivery of the lacZ reporter gene to hard-to-transfect mammalian cells, including proliferating and non-proliferating cells
- The lacZ gene encodes the enzyme beta-galactosidase, a commonly used reporter
- Expression can be detected with the Beta-Galactosidase Staining Kit
- Reporter that allows transduced cells to be identified by immunostaining with an anti-beta-galactosidase antibody or by enzyme activity assay (blue color development in the presence of X-gal)
- Can be used as a positive control during AAV particle preparation using the AAVpro Helper Free System
