Cloning Information for Gene/Insert 2
- Cloning method Ligation Independent Cloning
- 5′ sequencing primer O.PGK1b_F (CACATTCTTCACGTCCGTTC)
- 3′ sequencing primer GTCGCGATGTGAGAGGAGAG (Common Sequencing Primers)
Blasticidin gene was amplified from lentiCas9-Blast using primers F: TCTCCCCAGCAATTCACCatggccaagcctttgtctc, R: CAAGTGAGGAGAGAACCTCTACCTTCttagccctcccacacataacc. The PCR product was gel-purified and used to perform CPEC cloning on pCW-Cas9, as described in 21293463.
Because a previous version of this plasmid contained a STOP codon between the blasticidin resistance gene and rtTA, this stop codon was subsequently removed. The following primers were used to confirm removal of the STOP codon:
Forward primer: GTGTTCCGCATTCTGCAAG
Reverse primer: ACGTGCCAGTACAGGGTAGG
