Terms and Licenses
This is a new collection of constructs described in Cong et al. Nature Communications and also an updated TALE Tool Box containing Adeno-associated Virus (AAV) TALE Backbone constructs that allow packaging of TAL transcription factors (TALE-TF) and TALE nucleases (TALEN) into AAV. All constructs are from Feng Zhang lab at Broad Institute/MIT.
IMPORTANT: please note when using the new AAV TALE Backbones, the last 0.5 (half) repeat is not encoded in the backbone vector but instead need to be supplemented as a separate piece. Please refer to our website at http://taleffector.genome-engineering.org/ for more information on these new backbone vectors in the 'Protocols - Reagents' section under 'Special Note for New Adeno-associated Virus (AAV) TALE-TF and TALEN Backbones'.
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.
