This plasmid is an empty vector. Your gene can be inserted with a LIC cloning protocol. This plasmid can be used as a single-expression vector, and it is also compatible with our 2-series polycistronic destination vectors (2D, 2E, and 2Z), if co-expression with other genes is desired.
mCherry has a excitation max of 587 nm and an emission max of 610 nm.
To clone into this vector, add LIC tags to the 5' end of your PCR primers.
Forward - 5' TTTAAGAAGGAGATATAGATC3'
Reverse - 5' GTTGGAGGATGAGAGGATCCC 3'
Do NOT include a stop codon with your reverse primer.
Linearize the plasmid with EcoRV, then gel purify.
When digesting the DNA with T4 polymerase, use dGTP for the insert and dCTP for your linearized vector.
