  • pLox2+ (linearized)


    pLox2+ (linearized) is a substrate for Cre Recombinase (NEB #M0298). It is 3.65 kb in length and has a loxP site approximately 350 bp from each end. Between the loxP sites lie an origin of replication and an ampicillin resistance gene. Recombination between these loxP sites by Cre Recombinase produces a circular, ampicillin-resistant plasmid (which migrates at approximately 1.7 kb on a 0.8% agarose gel) and a 850 bp DNA fragment.
