Depositor Comments

This vector is a member of the pKK vector family. Its cloning site was optimized for the SLIC approach, however, a traditional restriction and ligation based approach is also possible (see Szczesny RJ et al. for detailed protocols; bioRxiv, doi: This vector is a derivate of the pcDNA5/FRT/TO plasmid (Invitrogen) and is suitable for stable cell line generation using the Flp-In system. Transcription of the gene of interest is driven by a tetracycline responsive CMV promoter. A given coding sequence can be cloned into all pKK vectors using just three universal PCR primers and a ligation-independent DNA cloning method. mRuby3 is brighter than mCherry and has shifted excitation and emission spectra. The mClover3-mRuby3 pair is superior to EGFP-mCherry in FRET analysis. At the time of publication (PMID: 26879144) mRuby3 was the brightest coral-derived RFP in mammalian cells. mRuby3 coding sequence was cloned from Addgene ID: 74252.
