To our valued collaborators, we here at DNASU wish to make you aware that we will be raising our rates on January 1st, 2018. In the past, DNASU has been partially subsidized by grants from the NIH, however, we are currently in transition to a self-sufficient model for our budget. Individual plasmids for academic/non-profit researchers will $55 per clone, plates of 96 clones (batch orders) will be $2000 each, and our large multi-plate plasmid collections will be provided at $2.50 per clone. We remain dedicated to providing high quality plasmids to the research community at low cost and our new rates reflect this commitment. For any questions related to price change, including our changes to commercial pricing, please contact us at DNASUHelp@asu.edu.

DNASU is happy to announce the Viral Proteome Collection , consisting of 838 viral proteins from different infectious diseases. These clones are ready to be expressed using IVTT systems, with c-terminal GST tags for protein capture. They were used to study the interactions between infectious diseases and Type I Diabetes in Immunoproteomic Profiling of Antiviral Antibodies in New-Onset Type 1 Diabetes Using Protein Arrays

The Arabidopsis thaliana ORF Collection V 1 is now available. This collection contains 12,085 ORFs, which represents 40% of all protein-encoding genes for this species, based on Araport 11 protein coding gene set. These clones are closed versions of the gene, 10295 in pENTR223.1 and 1790 in pENTR/D-Topo backbone vectors, both of which are Gateway Entry Vectors. This set of clones has been used previously to study the interactome of Arabidopsis thaliana. By using HaloTag-NAPPA technology and querying protein-protein interactions, Ecker et al used a set of 38 transcription factors related to plant hormone signaling pathways to identify 3,580 interactions among 2,238 proteins.

DNASU is proud to announce DNA preparation services are now available to our customers. As you order clones, in individual or batch orders, you can select to have DNA prepared and shipped to you with your glycerol stock. On the Checkout - Choose Payment Option page, you can opt to include DNA Preparation using our High Quality (only available to full plate orders at $325.00/96 well plate) or Standard Quality ($ 1.50/clone; $125.00/ 96 well plate) Extraction Services or you can place your order with No DNA (default selection). To find out more details on our DNA preparation processes , please visit this page: DNA Extraction. For DNA Prep involving Collections, please contact DNASU for a custom quote.

DNASU is a central repository for plasmid clones and collections. Currently we store and distribute over 200,000 plasmids including 75,000 human and mouse plasmids, full genome collections, the protein expression plasmids from the Protein Structure Initiative as the PSI: Biology Material Repository (PSI : Biology-MR), and both small and large collections from individual researchers. We are also a founding member and distributor of the ORFeome Collaboration plasmid collection.

Collections : DNASU provides sets of plasmids that you can purchase at a discounted price. Browse all available special collections here.

Biological Function : Browse for sets of plasmids with a particular function (e.g. glycoenzymes or GPCRs) or created for a particular purpose (e.g. all plasmids that were used for structural determination)

Empty Vector : Browse by vector characteristics such as tags and promoter. Or search for vectors using our Vector Feature Search or view all available empty vectors.
