No, pRK5 is an expression plasmid vector. pRK5 with actin cloned into
it is an expression plasmid vector for actin. In this particular situation,
it is common to drop the term "vector", so pRK5 can be called an
expression plasmid, and pRK5 with actin cloned into it, can be called
an actin expression plasmid.
They would be expression constructs in an adenoviral vector.
I think a virus is defined by its ability to replicate and spread. Which
is why viroids are distinguished from viruses - eg. HDV requires HHBV to
spread (although not for genome replication).
; you wouldn't stop calling me person if i had a vasectomy,
I think I'll steer clear of your virility.
Pseudoviruses? There are several different definitions, but generally
many animal virologists refer to VLPs as pseudoviruses or pseudovirions.
Anyway, from an editorial perspective, Human Gene Therapy and the
Journal of Virology, distinguish between viral vectors, and viral vector

Oh, that's easy enough. One of those rare things that can be defined
well. Sediments = sinks, e.g. its concentration becomes higher closer
to the Earth. With viruses and true colloids, that does not happen,
thanks to the brownian motion.
What is it that roareth thus?
Can it be a Motor Bus?
Yes, the smell and hideous hum
Indicat Motorem Bum!
Implet in the Corn and High
Terror me Motoris Bi:
Bo Motori clamitabo
Ne Motore caedar a Bo -
"Dative be or Ablative
So thou only let us live:
Whither shall thy victims flee?
Spare us, spare us, Motor Be!"
Thus I sang; and still anigh
Came in hordes Motores Bi,
Et complebat omne forum
Copia Motorum Borum.
How shall wretched lives like us
Cincti Bis Motoribus?
Domine, defende nos
Contra hos Motores Bos!
