Plasmid of the Day

pGBW-m4137386

Depositor: Ginkgo Bioworks

Purpose: Mammalian expression plasmid for SARS-CoV-2 surface glycoprotein (Spike protein)

Virus of the Day

pAAV-hSyn-DIO-ChrimsonR-mRu…

Depositor: Hillel Adesnik

Purpose: Ready-to-use AAV9 particles produced from pAAV-hSyn-DIO-ChrimsonR-mRuby2-ST (#105448). hSyn-driven expression of ChrimsonR fused to mRuby2 fluorophore and targeted to the neuronal soma and proximal dendrites for optogenetic activation. These AAV preparations are suitable purity for injection into animals.

Scientists Love Addgene

Addgene has been an exceptionally useful resource for us, both because they can be trusted to supply our plasmids to other labs efficiently, and because we ourselves are constantly ordering reagents of interest that other labs have deposited. Keep up the good work!

Our optogenetic tools are sweeping throughout neuroscience, helping scientists figure out how the brain works. Without Addgene helping provide these to the world, neuroscience would be moving at a much slower pace.
