Vector: pVALIUM1

Number of plasmids with this backbone: 1
Name: pVALIUM1
Description: Drosophila expression vector for high expression of hairpin insert MCS, loxP, and attB recombination sites. Detailed procedure for smal scale cloning can be found on the TRiP website: Hsp70 promoter with white and ftz intron. AmpR in bacteria; vermilion marker in drosophila. Vector may recombine in bacteria and should be stored as DNA.
Type: bacterial plasmid
Form: dsDNA
Size (bp):: 6742
Properties: drosophila in vitro and in vivo expression
