Oct4 and Sox2 are coexpressed under a strong EF promoter. Nanog and Klf4 are coexpressed under a separate (but identical) EF promoter. This plasmid contains EBNA-1 and OriP for limited maintenance in mammalian cells.
These plasmids were used at concentrations of >1.5 mg/ml. When preparing these plasmids for transfection, 3 low concentration maxipreps are done and the elution is combined in about 700 ul.
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.
