Vector backbonepUC19 (modified)
- Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 2600
- Total vector size (bp) 10500
Modifications to backboneAddition of ccdB markers to facilitate homology arm cloning
Vector typeWorm Expression, Cre/Lox, CRISPR
Selectable markersHygromycin ; sqt-1(d) (worm phenotypic marker)
Growth in Bacteria
Growth Strain(s)NEB Turbo
Growth instructionsThe dual ccdB sites in this vector may make it prone to recombination. It is recommended to pick several single clones and check test by restriction digestion before use. This construct should be maintained as a purified plasmid stock in addition to a bacterial stock in case there is a need to re-transform.
SpeciesC. elegans (nematode), Synthetic
Insert Size (bp)6600
/ Fusion Proteins
- C. elegans codon-optimized mKate2
- Cloning method Gibson Cloning
- 5′ sequencing primer M13 Forward (tgtaaaacgacggccagt)
- 3′ sequencing primer M13 Reverse (caggaaacagctatgaccatg) (Common Sequencing Primers)
pDD287is a derivative of our published TagRFP-SEC vector pDD285 (Dickinson et al. Genetics 2015, Addgene plasmid number 66825). It has a 3xMyc tag in place of 3xFlag, and Lox2272 sites in place of LoxP. These features allow pDD287 to be used in a genetic background that has already been modified using a green FP-SEC vector, without conflicts between epitope tags and Lox sites.
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.
