Resource Information

  • Supplemental Documents
  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    Cas9 + promoter and terminator was obtained from DiCarlo et al 2013 from addgene . I created the activator version by introducing the D10A and H840A mutations to make dCas9 and then fusing VP64 and S cerevisiae Gal4 activator domains.
