pBABE Comp. Cells - Special cells for transformation (Jul/07/2004 )

I am subcloning some inserts into pBABE vector. I was told by another post-doc that I need to use a special competent cell line. Anyone have experience with this vector system?? Thanks.



Better do a PubMed search to find out what bacteria others have used for transformation.

chemically competent DH5 alpha, as well as XL-1 blue, which are (our) standard strains work fine in our lab together with pBabe/Puro
