LV-Cre-SD minimizes the cytotoxic effects of Cre by causing Cre to be recombined out after transient expression. See article for details.

Note that this plasmid is VERY low copy. Grow in a high volume to acquire usable amounts.

Addgene has sequenced a portion of this plasmid for verification. Full plasmid sequence is available only if provided by the depositing laboratory.
