Depositor Comments

The following oligos were first cloned into pRetrosuper-Puro digested with BglII and HindIII.

Smad2-shRNA-sense: 5’-gatccccGGATTGCCACATGTTATATttcaagagaATATAACATGTGGCAATCCtttttggaaa-3’

Smad2-shRNA-antisense: 5’-agcttttccaaaaaGGATTGCCACATGTTATATtctcttgaaATATAACATGTGGCAATCCggg-3’

Next, the AgeI/XhoI fragments from shRNA sequence-containing pRetrosuper-Puro plasmids were cloned into the AgeI/XhoI site of pRetrosuper-GFP.
