Resource Information

  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    Puromycin resistance gene from pBabePuro (Addgene). rpl-28 promoter and let-858 3'UTR sequences from pPD129.57 vector (Addgene). mCherry gene from pCG144 (Seydoux lab, Addgene). Pharyngeal enhancer (C183) with minimal myo-2 promoter amplified from genomic DNA of AZ218 worms (Caenorhabditis Genetics Center).

Depositor Comments

Use for puromycin selection of transgenes in C. elegans.
This vector is identical to pBCN21-R4R3, but a 8xC183_minPmyo-2::mCherry::unc-54_3'UTR cassette was inserted in the backbone as an additional visual marker.
This is a Gateway 3-fragment compatible destination vector.
It contains AttR4 and AttR3 sites (not AttR1 and AttR2 sites as identified automatically by the Addgene algorithm).
