  • Vector backbone
    pQC mKorange IX
  • Backbone manufacturer
  • Backbone size (bp) 7013
  • Modifications to backbone
    Puromycin resistance from pLKO.1 - TRC cloning vector (Addgene #10878) were removed with BamHI and KpnI and blunted to fit EcoRV site from pQC mKorange IX (Addgene #37344). AgeI and EcoRI sites were also used to replace mKorange with synthetic MCS derived from annealed oligos (5' CCGGGGATCCGGTTCTAGAGCCACCGGTTGTATGGAGTTTAAACTCCAAAGCATCGATGGTAGCGGCCGCGGTGAATTCTGATT 3' and 5' AATTAATCAGAATTCACCGCGGCCGCTACCATCGATGCTTTGGAGTTTAAACTCCATACAACCGGTGGCTCTAGAACCGGATCC 3')

Depositor Comments

pQC-based γ-Retroviral transfer vector for cloning and expressing your gene of interest. IRES-driven Puromycin selection.

Also available as:
V5-mKO2-MCS-IRES-Puro (Addgene #110341)
V5 MCS IRES Puro (Addgene #110342)
MCS IRES Puro (Addgene #110343)
MCS IRES G418 (Addgene #110344)
V5 MCS IRES G418 (Addgene #110345)

All vectors can be used for TA-cloning (After XcmI cleavage), or BamHI-AgeI-PmeI-EcoRI restriction cloning.

Weinberg Lab recommends using pUMVC (Addgene #8449) and VSV-G (#8454) for packaging.
