The blasticidin-resistance gene (BSD) was amplified from the pcDNA6/V5-His plasmid (Invitrogen) using the primer pair 5'-GGAAGATGCATGCCAAGCCTTTGTCTCAAGAATCC ACCCTC-3' and 5'-GACGGGAAGCTTTGCTCCTCGGCCACGAAGTGC-3'. Amplified inserts were digested with NsiI and HindIII and used to replace the Toxoplasma gondii DHFR-TS in the pDT-Tg23 vector, yielding construct pCBM-BSD. The resulting size of the plasmid is 5.6 kilobases. The sequence has not been confirmed by BEI Resources. pCBM-BSD transfected P. falciparum 3D7 parasites confer resistance to blasticidin.

Each vial of MRA-103 contains approximately 20 µL of purified plasmid DNA in buffer at a concentration of 100 ng/20 µL.
