• Gene subcloning : Custom-made pSELECT
InvivoGen offers a large collection of genes provided in pUNO1, an expression plasmid selectable with Blasticidin. If the use of this antibiotic does not suit your needs, our experts can subclone any of our genes into a pSELECT plasmid carrying the selectable marker of your choice : hygromycin, G418/Geneticin, puromycin, Zeocin or GFP::Zeocin.

• Promoter assembly and subcloning : Custom-made pDRIVE
You can create your own composite promoter by combining the enhancer, core promoter and 5’UTR chosen from InvivoGen’s list (See Custom-Made pDRIVE List tab) . We will assemble this composite promoter in a pDRIVE plasmid harboring a reporter gene, either SEAP, Lucia luciferase or GFP or a gene chosen from our collection. We can also replace the selection marker.

• shRNA design and cloning : Custom-made psiRNA plasmid
You can either send us your siRNA/shRNA sequence or we can select the best candidate siRNA sequence for your target gene using the siRNA Wizard software.

The insert encoding the expected shRNA sequence will be cloned in the psiRNA-h7SK plasmid which is available with different selectable markers : blasticidin, G418/Geneticin, Zeocin or GFP::Zeocin.
