Use for puromycin selection of transgenes in C. elegans and related species if transgene has a visual phenotype and Pmyo-2::mCherry expression is undesirable.
The unc-119 gene in pCG150 was replaced by the Prpl-28::PuroR::let-858_3'UTR cassette for puromycin selection in worms.
This is a Gateway 3-fragment compatible destination vector.
It contains AttR4 and AttR3 sites (not AttR1 and AttR2 sites as identified automatically by the Addgene algorithm).
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.
