Depositor Comments

To express shRNAs, we used the pPRIME system. This generates
micro-RNA-30 (mir30)-derived shRNAs and co-expression of a marker protein, such as dsRED, from the same transcript. The shRNA hairpin sequences were placed into the mir30 site of pPRIME-cmv-dsRed-FF3 and then cloned into the AAV vector (Zhang et al 2015 Nat Neurosci),
SbfI(or PstI) + PacI will retrieve the 2.1kb insert (dsRed-scramble shRNA-chloramphenicol) and the 5.1kb AAV-CBA backbone, which is ampicillin resistant. The SbfI site in the middle of dsRed has been silenced. The construct can be linearised with XhoI.
