The 56 plasmid GreenGate cloning kit can be used to create plant expression vectors containing several cassettes and generate multi-construct transgenic plants.
This kit consists of one 96-well plate, and will be shipped as bacterial glycerol stocks on dry ice. Samples should be frozen at -80°C immediately upon arrival. Individual plasmids can be ordered from each plasmid page and will be shipped as bacterial stabs.
GreenGate - A Novel, Versatile, and Efficient Cloning System for Plant Transgenesis. Lampropoulos A, Sutikovic Z, Wenzl C, Maegele I, Lohmann JU, Forner J. PLoS One 2013 Dec 20;8(12):e83043. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0083043. PubMed PMID 24376629
GreenGate is a simple and efficient cloning system for rapidly assembling plant transformation constructs . It is based on the Golden Gate method. Using the type IIS restriction endonuclease BsaI and T4 DNA ligase, ready-to-use plant transformation vectors are built from six types of pre-cloned insert modules and a destination vector in a one-pot reaction. The six module types are (1) plant promoter, (2) N-terminal tag, (3) coding sequence (i.e. the gene of interest), (4) C-terminal tag, (5) plant terminator and (6) plant resistance cassette.
More information on these plasmids and their use can be found in the original publication.
