PrecisionX™ Gene Tagging HR Targeting Vector (GFP-pA-LoxP-EF1α-RFP-T2A-Hygro-pA-LoxP-MCS)
Create a GFP fusion to any gene with this HR targeting vector—features an RFP marker and hygromycin selection as a removable selection cassette.
Tag any gene with GFP
Use the PrecisionX™ Gene Tagging HR Targeting Vector (GFP-pA-LoxP-EF1α-RFP-T2A-Hygro-pA-LoxP-MCS) to fuse GFP to any gene in the genome. Clone your homology arms into the two MCSs and use hygromycin selection and RFP-positive imaging to find integrants. After you’ve identified clones with your GFP-tagged gene, you can remove the selection cassette using the Cre-LoxP system (learn more about Cre-LoxP excision here).
Even though gene knock-outs can result from DSBs caused by Cas9 alone, SBI recommends the use of HR targeting vectors (also called HR donor vectors) for more efficient and precise mutation. HR donors can supply elements for positive or negative selection ensuring easier identification of successful mutation events. In addition, HR donors can include up to 6-8 kb of open reading frame for gene knock-ins or tagging, and, when small mutations are included in either 5’ or 3’ homology arms, can make specific, targeted gene edits.
