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 note that the sequence from which the Addgene map was generated is an estimate of the real sequence based on how the vector was assembled. We encourage scientists to test enzymes before using them for cloning.
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
