Empty lentiviral vector for siRNA expression; replaces Lentihair; see author's map. The 293T cell line can be obtained from the Weinberg lab or GenHunter http://genhunter.com/products/aptag-3/index.html
Note that Addgene's quality control sequence shows that there are about 25 nucleotides between the AgeI and EcoRI sites (the depositor sequences is not as accurate in this region).
For packaging, please use pCMV-dR8.2 dvpr (Addgene plasmid #8455) and pCMV-VSVG (Addgene plasmid #8454). For the official vector of The RNAi Consortium and a plasmid map, please see plasmid #10878.
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.
For your Materials & Methods section:pLKO.1 puro was a gift from Bob Weinberg (Addgene plasmid # 8453)
