I have been using DH10B cells for electroporation with pCaSpeR-hs
(very similar to pCaSpeR but with hsp70 sequences present
divergent from white) after standard ligation protocols of my
insert downstream from the hsp70 promoter sequence.  For
electroporation I have been using 40 uL of cells with 0.2 cm gap.

Hope this helps.
