This recombinant human adenovirus type 5 expresses mCherry under a CMV promoter. mCherry is a red monomer which matures extremely rapid, making it possible to see results very soon after activating transcription. It is highly photostable and resistant to photobleaching. Recombinant mCherry adenovirus serves as a control for other recombinant adenoviruses. Since mCherry is easily visualized under fluorescence microscopy, this adenovirus can also be used to determine the transduction efficiency and to optimize viral infection condition in a specific cell type.
