This material is available to academics and nonprofits only.
Vector backbonepSico PGK puro
- Backbone size (bp) 7703
Modifications to backbonePuromycin is expressed from this plasmid as a selectable marker. Cre causes the puromycin gene to be recombined out of the construct, activating shRNA expression.
Vector typeMammalian Expression, Lentiviral, RNAi, Cre/Lox
Growth in Bacteria
Copy numberHigh Copy
- Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
- 5′ cloning site HpaI (not destroyed)
- 3′ cloning site XhoI (not destroyed)
- 5′ sequencing primer n/a (Common Sequencing Primers)
pSico PGK puro allows for conditional (Cre-Lox), stable expression of shRNAs for RNA interference in cells and transgenic mice. Addition of Cre TURNS ON shRNA expression.
The shRNA coding oligos have to be cloned into the HpaI and XhoI restriction sites. Oligo design information can be found on the author's map or on the Jacks Lab website http://web.mit.edu/ccr/labs/jacks/protocols/pSico.html
