Depositor Comments

The Sleeping Beauty transposon system consists of two components: the transposon vector and the transposase vector. The transposon vector (pT4/HB, Addgene #108352) contains binding sites flanking the GOI. And the transposase vector (pCMV(CAT)T7-SB100, Addgene #34879) encodes for the enzyme mediating excision and integration of the GOI.
