The Zeng lab recommends amplifying this plasmid in 15 microg/ml kanamycin to reduce recombination. Addgene is not able to supply the plasmid under these selection conditions and the stab you receive will be under Amp selection. We recommend using the low conc. Kan selection and checking your plasmid prep for recombination.
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.
