A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made byThe red fluorescent protein dTomato was obtained from Roger Tsien's laboratory and was published in: Nature Biotechnology 22, 1567 - 1572 (2004) and pSICO was obtained from Tyler Jacks laboratory.

Articles Citing this Plasmid
The HIV-dTomato plasmid encodes a self-inactivating lentiviral plasmid that was cloned by removing the U6-TATAlox-CMVie-EGFP-TATAlox- WPRE content of pSICO (Ventura et al., 2004), and adding the EF1-alpha promoter, a multiple cloning site (MCS), an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) and EGFP. A cDNA can be cloned into the MCS (NotI, EcoRI, HpaI, XbaI, SmaI, and BamHI sites) to enable bicistronic expression with dTomato. This construct was made in Zena Werb's laboratory and has not been published. Note: This plasmid contains dTomato and not the tandem conjugate TdTomato.
