Use for puromycin selection of transgenes in C. elegans.
This vector is identical to pBCN21-R4R3, but a 8xC183_minPmyo-2::mCherry::unc-54_3'UTR cassette was inserted in the backbone as an additional visual marker.
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).

Addgene has sequenced a portion of this plasmid for verification. Full plasmid sequence is available only if provided by the depositing laboratory.
