Please acknowledge Jay Morgenstern and Hartmut Land and cite the following article if you use this plasmid in a publication:
Morgenstern JP, Land H., 1990, Nucleic Acids Research 18(12):3587-96.

If you are using the pBABE protocol from the Weinberg Lab to generate virus, please note that the Weinberg Lab recommends using pUMVC (Addgene #8449) and VSV-G (#8454) for packaging. The pCL-Eco plasmid listed in their protocol should be substituted with pUMVC.

Please see "Notes from Addgene" for the best sequence of the MCS region.

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