Nucleotide (GenBank) :
Ligation-independent promoter-cloning vector pLUC/LIC, complete sequence.
Size (kb): 4.4000000953674320
Vector: pCAT/LIC (plasmid)
Construct size (kb): 4.400000095367432
Features: marker(s): ampR
reporter group: cat coding sequence
terminator: SV40 polyadenylation
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): ApaI--4.4; HindIII--4.4; XbaI--4.4.
Preparation of the vector for cloning includes linearization with ApaI, gel purification of the linearized vector, and treatment with T4 DNA polymerase in the presence of dATP.
The target sequence can be amplified using sequence specific primers modified at the 5' end to contain an additional 13 nt complementary to the vector.
The forward primer should contain 5'-CCTGCTCGTCTGA-3' followed by 12-15 nt target-specific sequence. The reverse primer should contain 5'-GGTGGTGCTCTGA-3' followed by 12-15 nt target-specific sequence.
Sequences amplified using these primers are also compatible with the pLUC/LIC vector (ATCC 87045)
Ligation-independent promoter-cloning vector, using chloramphenicol acetyltransferase as the reporter group.
The order of the major features in the plasmid is: ampR - pMB1 ori - HindIII - ApaI - XbaI - cat coding sequence - SV40 splice site and polyadenylation.
