Depositor Comments

Targeting vector to generate R26-CreER^T2 mice. XbaI/MluI SA-CreER^T2 fragment of pMB61, MluI/XbaI PA-floxed PGK-Puro fragment of pMB75, and XbaI-digested modified version of pROSA26-1 vector where SacII site is replaced by an AscI linearization site.

See sequence link for sequence of insert from author. Please note that there are minor errors in the sequence, specifically there are no XbaI sites within the insert. Please see Addgene test digest with XbaI for the expected bands.
