Depositor Comments

Please see the attached protocol or for information on using this plasmid, including cloning, PCR, screening, minipreps, maxipreps, restriction digest, sequencing and virus preparation.

To clone your gene of interest into this plasmid, use the following primers. Note that the forward primer does not include a Kozak-optimized sequence--you may want to add your own.

To view the sequence of the vector backbone please see Addgene plasmid 38286 Note that the vector numbers are different to those in the original publication - the original work used vectors in which the genome was derived from the AdEasy vectors. The new vectors contain a newly derived & sequenced Ad5 genome, but the expression cassettes etc remain identical to those in the original paper.
