cDNA Resource Center

Is a non-profit service providing full-length cDNA clones encoding human signal transduction proteins to the research community. The distribution fee reflects our direct costs for producing, verifying, and distributing these clones.

The Center provides clones of human proteins that are:

  • Full-length
  • Sequence verified
  • Expression verified in most cases by coupled in vitro transcription/ translation assays
  • Propagated in versatile vectors (primarily the mammalian expression vector pcDNA3.1+, Invitrogen)
  • Free of extraneous 3' and 5' untranslated regions
  • Available in wild-type, epitope-tagged and useful mutant forms (e.g., constitutively-active, dominant negative, PTX-resistant)
  • Shipped by courier delivery (Federal Express), most within a day of placing your order
  • Guaranteed for 6 months from original date of purchase

Orders for cDNA will be charged $40 USD for international shipping by FedEx international priority. Domestic orders for cDNA are charged $15.50 for shipping FedEx overnight. Shipping cost for stable transfected cell lines may vary, and may not be available to all countries. Please contact us at for more information.

It is the customer's responsibility to notify us of any requirements for import of biological materials, and to provide any necessary license or permits. Please inform us of any special instructions which we should observe to assist with a smooth passage of your order through customs.


All clones developed for distribution are blotted as dried DNA in a 0.5ml screw-cap micro-centrifuge tube. These blots will be the same relative amount (~ 5000ng) dried on the side of the tube and then individually labeled. Instructions for re-suspending the dried DNA is on the FAQ provided with each order, and is also available under the FAQS heading on this website.
