I am planinng to express viral proteins and antisense viral RNAs in Baby
Hamster Kidney (BHK) cells to assess their potential to interfere with
viral replication.
Can anyone suggest a promoter(s) that is strongly active in this kind of cells?
In particular I am considering the CMV early promoter (present in many
commercial vectors) but would like to know for sure that it is suitable for
BHK cells.
Thank you very much for your help.
