Resource Information

Depositor Comments

This vector can be used as an shRNA control. The pSicoR-Ef1α-mCh-Puro lentiviral construct was created by replacing the CMV promoter of pSicoR-mCherry (Addgene vector 21907) with Ef1α and adding an in-frame T2A-puromycin-resistance gene cassette following mCherry. A single RNA molecule is generated for mCherry-T2A-puromycin and two polypeptides are produced by the T2A ribosomal skip motif. The shRNA coding oligos are cloned into the HpaI and XhoI restriction sites as described for pSicoR.
