Depositor Comments

To prepare vector, a BamHI fragment encoding c-MYC was released from pBABE-puro-cMYC-ER. See Littlewood TD, Hancock DC, Danielian PS, Parker MG and
Evan GI. (1995). Nucleic Acids Res., 23, 1686–1690. A BamHI fragment encoding KLF4 was inserted into the same sites of this vector.
