- Backbone size (bp) 7566
Modifications to backboneEGFP is expressed from this plasmid as a marker, but it is not a fusion protein. Cre causes EGFP to be recombined out of the construct, activating shRNA expression.
Vector typeMammalian Expression, Lentiviral, RNAi, Cre/Lox
Growth in Bacteria
Copy numberHigh Copy
- Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
- 5′ cloning site HpaI (not destroyed)
- 3′ cloning site XhoI (not destroyed)
- 5′ sequencing primer EGFP-C (Common Sequencing Primers)
pSico allows for conditional (Cre-Lox), stable expression of shRNAs for RNA interference in cells and transgenic mice. Addition of Cre TURNS ON shRNA expression.
The shRNA coding oligos have to be cloned into the HpaI and XhoI restriction sites. Oligo design information can be found on the author's map or on http://web.mit.edu/jacks-lab/ (the Jacks Lab website)
