Resource Information

Depositor Comments

This vector was derived from pSICO-pgk Puro, and no longer contains the loxp sites. Therefore, Puro 2.0 allows constitutive shRNA expression in mammalian cells. The shRNA coding oligos have to be cloned into the HpaI and XhoI restriction sites. Oligo design information can be found on the author's map or on the Jacks Lab website
