Depositor Comments

The shRNA hairpin sequences were placed into the mir30 site of pPRIME-cmv-dsRed-FF3 (Addgene Plasmid 11664; gift from S. Elledge, Howard Hughes Medical Institute). Inserts in pPRIME were released by SbfI and PacI digestion, and cloned into the PstI and PacI sites in the polylinker of the AAV-genome plasmid pAM-flex (Murray AJ et al.2011 Nat Neurosci 14, p297), to give ITR-cmv-Penhancer/chicken β-actin-dsRED-mir30-shRNA-woodchuck post-translational regulatory sequence (WPRE)-bovine growth hormone polyadenylation signal (pA)-ITR. The sh RNA knocks down mouse adra2a expression.
