What is IDT’s standard vector for Genes and MiniGene™ constructs?

IDT's standard delivery vector for Genes and MiniGene™ constructs is the pIDT-SMART; it is a derivative of the commercial pSMART vector (Lucigen Inc.).

The pIDT-SMART is a cloning vector, not an expression vector.  Transcription terminators flank the cloning site.

This vector is available in both kanamycin- and ampicillin-resistant versions. The kanamycin version is used by default; the ampicillin version can be used upon customer request.
