Resource Information

Depositor Comments

Please note that this plasmid can be prone to recombination in bacteria. We recommend storing and propagating the construct in Stbl3 cells and screen 4-6 colonies by sequencing with TAL_F1 (ttggcgtcggcaaacagtgg) primer.

The F1 origin feature in the full plasmid sequence is in reverse compliment orientation. Please view Addgene's quality control sequence for the most accurate information. The flipped orientation does not affect the SacI site necessary to linearize the plasmid.

For further reference, this plasmid was also used in the Bedell et al Nature 2012 publication (PMID 23000899).
