60 Another alternative to the IRES is the use of self-cleaving 2A cleavage factors, which are derived from various picornaviruses. 62 Important cis-Acting Elements In addition to promoters, the packaging signal (ψ), integration signals (attL and attR), primer binding site and splice donor, and in most cases, splice acceptor sites (SD and SA) are required elements. 65 Most often, the rev response element (RRE) is used, which requires incorporation of Rev in the production system. RRE can be replaced with alternative RNA export elements, such as the constitutive transport element (CTE) derived from the beta retroviruses and simian retrovirus type 1 (SRV-1).
