Viable double vaccinia virus recombinants with the non-inducible phage T7 expression system.

Double vaccinia virus recombinants expressing both the T7 RNA polymerase gene, controlled by a weak early poxvirus PF promoter, and the Escherichia coli beta-galactosidase gene, controlled by the phage T7 promoter, have been obtained. The viability of the double recombinants depended on the T7 RNA polymerase expression level. If the T7 RNA polymerase gene… CONTINUE READING
