Suicide genes code for enzymes that convert non-toxic compounds (prodrugs) into toxic products.
The thymidine kinase (tk) gene from Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) codes for thymidine kinase, an enzyme able to convert nucleoside analogs such as ganciclovir into cytotoxic molecules.

InvivoGen has engineered a synthetic CpG-free fusion gene between the HSV1-tk gene and the Sh ble gene conferring Zeocin™ resistance. This fusion gene enables a better and faster selection of Zeocin-resistant clones. The CpG-free HSV1-tk::Sh fusion gene is provided in the expression plasmid pSelect-zeo which is selectable with Zeocin™ in both mammalian and E.coli cells.
