promoter-cloning vector
shuttle vector
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--3.7, 2.0; SmaI--5.7.
The UMS sequences reduce background CAT transcription from the vector to levels approaching mock-transfected cells.
A shuttle vector for assessing weak transcriptional activity of a cloned promoter using a CAT reporter gene.
A 1023 bp SacI/XbaI fragment containing the poly(A) signal of mouse c-mos (UMS) was cloned into the NdeI site of pSV0cat. The NdeI site is 56 bp upstream of the SmaI cloning site. Constructed by J-P. Salier and K. Kurachi.
Media ATCC® Medium 1227: LB Medium (ATCC medium 1065) with 50 mcg/ml ampicillin
Growth Conditions
Temperature: 37.0°C
