OverviewThe BacMagic™-2 DNA Kit provides a positive selection for creating baculoviruses recombinants in preparation for generating recombinant protein expression in insect cells. The kit improves on the traditional method for generating recombinant baculoviruses by eliminating the tedious, time-consuming steps of plaque purification. Like BacMagic™ DNA, BacMagic-2 DNA is derived from an AcNPV genome, contains an ORF 1629 deletion which prevents nonrecombinant virus from replicating in insect cells, and contains a deletion of the nonessential chitinase (chiA) gene, to improve production of secreted and membrane-targeted proteins. BacMagic-2 DNA have an additional deletion of the v-cath gene, a cathespsin-like cysteine protease, resulting in significantly improved quality and yield for most target proteins. The BacMagic-2 DNA Kit contains the BacMagic-2 DNA, Insect GeneJuice® Transfection Reagent, and a positive control plasmid to monitor co-transfection efficiency.
