Depositor Comments

The transgene of interest can be inserted into BamHI, PmeI, and PstI sites. However, only the PmeI and PstI sites are recommended to be used for different restriction end ligation.

This plasmid must be used together with an independent tTA-expressing plasmid for Tet-Off system or rtTA-expressing plasmid for Tet-On system.

The TetO promoter sequence was excised from pETE-Bsd plasmid vector, which was originated from pUHD-10-3. The pETE-Bsd and pUHD-10-13 were engineered by Protopopov et al. and Damke et al, respectively.
