- About Lentiviral Vector
- Lentiviral vectors based on the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) can efficiently transfer genes into both dividing and nondividing cells. The late Dr. Hiroyuki Miyoshi had developed useful lentiviral vectors for basic research. If you are interested in using his vectors (see plasmid list), please e-mail to Dr. Murata (email@example.com).
- Please note that distribution of the plasmids is limited to non-profit academic research by a non-profit academic organization.

- The DNA BANK will charge the cost of production and expense necessary for preparation and distribution of the plasmids. The cost is 8,440 JPY (ca. 80 USD) per plasmid (the distribution fees was revised from October 1, 2019). Please inform us your FedEx account number and the name of account folder so that you can bear the shipping expense.
