Dear all,

I am about to express MFP in a baculovirus system. The transfer vector
system is based on the pVL1393 from Pharmigen. As it happens, our lab
has a stock of transfection material from Clontech, who uses the pBacPAK
series of vectors as transfer vectors.
My question is therefore very simple, is the transfection mix the same
in both cases or do you need to buy the Pharmigen "baculogold" kit to
get the virus ??

Thanks in advance for any input,
