How do I titer pLKO.1 viral particles?

Since there is no visual marker in the pLKO. 1 vector, puromycin selection is needed for titering. Wait 24 to 48 hrs post-transduction before starting selection to allow the cells time to express the puromycin resistance protein. After selection count the colonies and apply the appropriate titering formula.
