Depositor Comments

Transgenes can be expressed from any RNA Pol II promoter as part of bicistronic unit comprising the KRAB-based repressor; tetO sequences are inserted into the vector LTR. Tet-on and Tet-off versions rely on repressors that bind in the absence or the presence of doxycycline, respectively. Addition of Pol III promoter-small hairpin RNA cassette allows for drug-controllable RNA interference (Tet-on shRNA).

Cloning shRNA into pLVET, pLVCT, and pLVPT vectors: first clone shRNA into pLVTHM downstream of the tetO-H1 region. Then cut pLVTHM containing your shRNA with MscI-FspI and clone the insert containing the 3'LTR to target plasmid opened with MscI-FspI. FspI cuts into AmpR. This means for inverted clones AmpR will not be restored; after selection you will be left with clones with the shRNA cassette and functional AmpR.

pLVTHM and packaging plasmid for this system are also available at Addgene Please visit Trono lab website to see frequently asked questions on cloning strategies and packaging. You may also visit LentiWeb for discussion on cloning strategies and protocols.
