Depositor Comments

From article: A tet-inducible lentivirus called LV-tetO was generated by removing the EcoRI/PacI fragment containing the ubiquitin promoter elements from the FUdeltaGW vector (modified from FUGW by removal of GFP with EcoRI-XbaI and re-creation of the EcoRI site) and replacing it with tetO sequences derived from pTet-Splice by EcoRI/XhoI digestion.cDNAs for c-Myc (T58A mutant), Klf4, Oct4, and Sox2 were isolated from pMIG or pMX vectors and cloned into LV-tetO using a unique EcoRI restriction site.
