PiggyBac Transposon

Easy, consistent transgenesis free from limitations on insert size and available in a footprint-free format

For transgenesis that’s easy, consistent, and not limited by cargo size, SBI’s PiggyBac Transposon System is an excellent choice. The system consists of a PiggyBac Vector and the Super PiggyBac Transposase which recognizes transposon-specific inverted terminal repeats (ITRs) and efficiently integrates the ITRs and intervening DNA into the genome at TTAA sites. The Super PiggyBac Transposase is delivered to the cell via the Super PiggyBac Transposase Expression Vector, which is co-transfected with one or more PiggyBac Vectors.

In addition to ease-of-use, consistency, and the lack of limits on DNA insert size, what sets this system apart is the ability to reverse the integration reaction in a footprint-free way—with the Excision Only PiggyBac Transposase (Cat.# PB220PA-1), the ITRs and cargo that the Super PiggyBac Transposase integrates into the genome can be removed, leaving behind the original genomic sequence and nothing else.
