contains sequence beta-galactosidase beta-D-galactosidase
expression vector
in another host, produces protein beta-galactosidase beta-D-galactosidase
reporter construct
shuttle vector
vector permitting production of single-stranded DNA
vector permitting visual detection of activity in colonies
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--4.4, 3.4, 1.2; HindIII--9.0; BglII--9.0, KpnI--4.5 (doublet); XbaI--9.0.
Transient expression experiments should be performed to examine the RSV promoter efficiency in different cell lines. The RSV promoter can be replaced by excising with a BglII/HindIII digest.
Shuttle reporter plasmid permitting visual detection of activity by histochemical staining.
Presence of beta-galactosidase activity is used to follow cell lineage in culture or in situ.
pRSVlacZII (ATCC 77129), pRSVPAP (ATCC 77130) and pRSVADH (ATCC 77131) provide distinct color-staining reactions (aqua blue, red, and blue-black respectively) to permit simultaneous analysis of multiple lineages.
The order of the major features in pRc/RSV is: RSV LTR - MCS - bovine growth hormone polyadenylation signal - M13 ori - SV40 early promoter - neoR - SV40 polyadenylation signal - pMB1 ori - bla.
Constructed by cloning the 3.9 kb HindIII/BamHI fragment from pM-MuLV-SV-lacZ into pRc/RSV.
