The deposited sequence file of pWS-TK2 is from compilation of previous plasmids, and only part of it has been re-sequenced. There is a gap between author's sequence and Addgene sequence that will NOT affect the use of this plasmid.
Please also note that Addgene's quality control sequencing indicates that the PacI and SgfI sites present in the depositor's map are not present in the plasmid's actual sequence.
pWS-TK2 is designed to have two variants of thymidine kinase gene from herpes virus.
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.
For your Materials & Methods section:pWS-TK2 was a gift from Mario Capecchi (Addgene plasmid # 20348 ; http://n2t.net/addgene:20348 ; RRID:Addgene_20348)
