reporter construct
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI/HindIII--2.9, 1.6, 0.4, 0.3; PvuI/PvuII--1.8, 1.7, 1.5; SmaI/SalI--5.0; SalI--uncut; SmaI--5.0.
The component of a multiplex gene regulatory system containing the target transponding promoter sequence and reporter gene. The transactivating gene product is encoded in pNFT (ATCC 68668).
The 2.1 kb SmaI/SalI fragment contains the promoter fragment linked to coding sequences for chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) along with SV40 splice and polyadenylation signals.
Constructed by inserting the ClaI/SalI (end filled) fragment of pPO2 into the HincII site of the vector. Transcription from the SP6 promoter gives sense RNA.
Media ATCC® Medium 1227: LB Medium (ATCC medium 1065) with 50 mcg/ml ampicillin
