In Figure 8 of the GIPZ product manual, is this the empty pGIPZ vector or a shRNAmir containing GIPZ vector?

It is the empty pGIPZ vector and the sizes given in the manual are for empty pGIPZ vector NOT for a vector with a hairpin. For a vector with a hairpin the following band sizes would be affected by increasing in size by about 167bp: SacII 1178, KpnI 1750, SalI 4298, XhoI/NotI 10,400 (wouldn’t be able to see this difference on a gel).
