Depositor Comments

piB-GFP is a donor vector that contains an hsp70 TATA box fused to an enhanced GFP open reading frame and an SV40 polyA tail. This gene construct is flanked by inverted attB sites in the vector pBluescript. piB-GFP is a useful vector for cloning a gene of interest into a donor cassette; the GFP gene can be excised and new sequences can be inserted between the inverted attB sites using BamHI, SalI, or HindIII.

*One note on preparing this vector: we had difficulty growing piB-GFP in a larger 25 ml culture for midiprepping, but there were no problems in smaller 3 ml cultures suitable for minipreps. For all of our GFP injections, we used mini-prepped piB-GFP that was further purified on a pcr-purification column to remove RNAse contaminants.
