Depositor Comments

This is an empty LIC vector derived from pcDNA3. It adds an mCherry gene to the C-terminus of your protein of interest.

mCherry has a excitation max of 587 nm and an emission max of 610 nm.

To clone into this vector, add the following tags to your PCR primers:



Do NOT include a stop codon with your reverse primer.

T4-treat PCR with dCTP. Linearize vector with SspI, then T4-treat with dGTP. Can verify the presence of insert by digesting with HindIII and XbaI.
