Abstract

We have developed an episomal replicating expression vector in which the SV40 gene coding for the large T-antigen was replaced by chromosomal scaffold/matrix attached regions. Southern analysis as well as vector rescue experiments in CHO cells and in Escherichia coli demonstrate that the vector replicates episomally in CHO cells. It occurs in a very low copy number in the cells and is stably maintained over more than 100 generations without selection pressure.
