This material is available to academics and nonprofits only.


  • Vector backbone
  • Backbone manufacturer
    Addgene (#33361)
  • Vector type
    Mouse Targeting
  • Selectable markers
    Neomycin (select with G418) ; tetracycline

Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
  • Growth instructions
    Do not select for this plasmid with tetracycline, as we have found that the Tet resistance cassette does not work reliably in high-copy plasmids such as this one. The Tet cassette MUST be transferred to a low-copy vector, e.g. a BAC, to allow Tet resistance in a reliable fashion. In BAC clones it has been extremely reliable.

Depositor Comments

To generate the GFP-IRES-β-geo cassette, a PacI site was inserted was inserted upstream of the Kozak consensus of EGFP in pEGFP-C1 (kind gift of David Piston) and a PacI/XhoI fragment containing the EGFP open reading frame was inserted into pIBG-FTET (Chandler et al., 2007b) to create pGFP-IBGFTet (also known as pGIBGFTET).

A mismatch between author sequence and Addgene sequencing results was found at nucleotide position 5695 (with SV40pA-R primer) as well as at position 6913 (with EBV-rev primer). These sequence differences predate the construction of this plasmid.
