Depositor Comments

Please note that this plasmid contains a different promoter compared to the inducible KRAB-dCas9-P2A-mCherry construct described in Figure 5A of the associated publication (Gilbert et al., 2014). To create an inducible version of KRAB-dCas9-P2A-mCherry, subclone the insert into a backbone with an inducible promoter, such as pTRE3G.

For stable expression of KRAB-dCas9 as described in Gilbert et al., 2014, please see pHR-SFFV-dCas9-BFP-KRAB (Addgene plasmid #46911).
