Resource Information

  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    Codon-optimized dCas9 was synthesized in two parts by IDT. Using ligation and PCR amplification, the full dCas9 vector was constructed and subsequently cloned into the pAH-CTX1-rha background. This insert was designed based on the dCas9 CDS from pdCas9-bacteria (Qi et al. 2013).
