Purpose(Empty Backbone) TALEN backbone vector for use with the Golden Gate TALEN Kit in place of pTAL1-4. Shorter N- and C-terminal tal protein segments increases mutation induction; Fok I DD (improved version=pCS2TAL3-DDD)

Modifications to backboneThe tal1c sequence from Dan Voytas lab's pTAL3 vector (1214-2210nt) consisting of a truncated N terminal and C terminal Tal protein regions and a LacZ screening module for use in Golden Gate cloning was PCR cloned into the KpnI and BamHI sites of the pCS2-Flag-TTGZFP-FokI-DD vector from Scot Wolfe's lab, making the new vector pCS2TAL3-DD. A Esp3I site in the FokI domain of the backbone vector was modified without changing the coding sequence.
