Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Shipping Information Freeze dried E. coli containing the plasmid
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BspDI/XbaI--5.8, 4.2; EcoRI--6.8, 3.0; HindIII--9.0; 0.8.
The insert contains the following restriction sites (approximate kb from the 5' end): EcoRV--1.08; HindIII--1.12; BglII--1.70; EcoRI--2.45
This construct allows the exogenously expressed SREBF2 to be cleaved in a sterol-regulated fashion after transfection into 293 cells (ATCC CRL-1573).
The amino terminus was truncated at amino acid 14 and fused to the HSV tag of the vector.
