Does CMV express in Human ES Cells?
Here is the link to a CMV promoter paper with multiple examples of promoters in hES cells. It is a nice review and even looks at different lines of hES cells. Unfortunately the CMV info is from non-viral vectors, but they still show that it can persistently express. None of the viral vectors shown here have the CMV promoter. http: //www. nature. com/mt/journal/v15/n5/full/6300125a. html
