Depositor Comments

To make a drug-inducible lentiviral vector that is compatible with Gateway recombination (Invitrogen), the depositing laboratory removed the OCT4 open reading frame from FU-tetO-hOCT4 (Addgene plasmid 19778) and replaced it with a Gateway cassette cloned from pEF-DEST51 (Invitrogen) to generate FU-tetO-Gateway. ORFs that lack stop codons can be cloned into this plasmid to express proteins with a C-terminal V5 epitope tag.

Please note that Addgene's sequencing results identified a single nucleotide insert between bp# 2913/2914 and single nucleotide mismatches at bp# 3303 and 4652 when compared to the full plasmid sequence provided by the depositing laboratory. These differences do not affect the function of the plasmid.
