Depositor Comments

All labeled restriction sites (RS) in red on the map of the binary plasmid pFGC-pcoCas9 is single cut except StuI, which was used to insert the 35SPPDK:pcoCas9:NOS expression cassette. Among those RSs, EcoRI, XhoI, AscI, PacI, AsiSI, SbfI, and XmaI/SmaI can be used to insert single or multiple guide RNA expression cassettes (AscI, PacI, and SbfI are strongly recommended).
The pUC119-gRNA (Addgene plasmid #52255) construct is used as the PCR template to assemble a new guide RNA expression cassette flanked by desired restriction site(s) according to Fig. S5 in Li et al. Nat. Biotechnol. 31: 688-691.
