Comments
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BamHI--4.7; HindIII--4.7.
The vector contains modified luciferase (luc+) gene from the firefly Photinus pyralis in order to increase the yield of recoverable luciferase activity after transfection and to eliminate potential cryptic regulatory elements.
The promoters driving luc+ transcription in these two vectors represent different 5' deletions of the tk promoter ending at -32 and -105, respectively.
The optimized luciferase reporter gene vectors (ATCC 87630 - 87633) provide valuable tools for the analysis of eukaryotic regulatory DNA elements.
The vectors pTATALUC+ (ATCC 87631) and ptkLUC+ (ATCC 87632) were designed for the characterization of isolated cis regulatory elements.
