Vector typeMammalian Expression, Lentiviral
Growth in Bacteria
Growth instructionsNote it is possible that the 24x MS2 repeats may recombine even in Stbl3 cells. If this occurs, try growing the plasmid at 30C instead.
Alt name24 x MS2-binding sites (MBS)
Insert Size (bp)2054
- Promoter CMV
/ Fusion Protein
- CFP (N terminal on backbone)
- Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
- 5′ cloning site unknown (unknown if destroyed)
- 3′ cloning site unknown (unknown if destroyed)
- 5′ sequencing primer CMV-F
- 3′ sequencing primer WPRE-R (5'-CATAGCGTAAAAGGAGCAACA-3') (Common Sequencing Primers)

Articles Citing this Plasmid
The Singer Lab no longer recommends this plasmid, as it has a higher rate of bacterial recombination.
For mammalian cells they recommend the following plasmids:
pUbC-FLAG-24xSuntagV4-oxEBFP-AID-baUTR1-24xMS2V5-Wpre (Plasmid #84561)
HaloTag-bActinCDS-bActinUTR-MS2V5 (Plasmid #102718)
For yeast cells they recommend the following plasmids:
pET246-pUC57 12xMS2V6 (Plasmid #104390)
pET259-pUC57 24xMS2V6 (Plasmid #104391)
pET251-pUC 12xMS2V6 Loxp KANr Loxp (Plasmid #104392)
pET264-pUC 24xMS2V6 Loxp KANr Loxp (Plasmid #104393)
Due to the propensity of the plasmid to recombine, Addgene recommends screening multiple colonies by restriction analysis to ensure that the isolated clones contain a full set of 24 MS2 repeats
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
