Depositor Comments

Sternson Lab recommendations for propagation of AAV-FLEX plasmids: "These vectors are prone to recombination. This is a well known issue with these AAV vectors and is due to the inverted terminal repeats (ITRs) required for AAV production. To minimize recombination, we propagate these plasmids in NEB Stable cells. Also, to minimize recombination, cells should be cultured at 30 C.

Note that these cultures will grow slowly (20 h for minipreps). Better yields and culture times are obtained with 2xYT as the media. This is strongly recommended.

Because recombination may still happen occasionally, we do a panel of restriction digestions to assess whether the ITRs are in tact. Separate digestions with PvuII, Sma1, and SnaB1 should be performed."
