Help & FAQs: cDNA Clones

  • Do the VersaClone cDNA (Catalog # RDC-XXXX) include a Kozak sequence?
  • Yes, our RDC plasmids include a Kozak sequence for optimal translation initiation. The Kozak sequence is not depicted on the plasmid map, but it is present in the plasmid DNA sequence on the product datasheet. For example, the Kozak sequence for RDC1071 is the first 12 nucleic acids labeled gcggccgccacc.
