Parental clone: Cre excised pCOIN DV; pEntry L4 rtTA-IRES-Puro-pA-Ins/Ins-TRE ; pEntry attR2-IRES-eGFP-luc+-pA-attL3; pENTR1A-OSKM
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by introducing a reverse tetracycline transactivator (rtTA), followed by an IRES-puromycin-polyA cassette from pEntry L4 rtTA-IRES-Puro-pA-Ins/Ins-TRE R1, the OSKM cassette from pENTR1A-OSKM and an IRES-EGFP-Luciferase-polyA cassette from pEntry attR2-IRES-eGFP-luc+-pA-attL3 into the Cre excised pCOIN DV vector via Gateway LR recombination.
The plasmid contains:
- two heterospecific Saccharomyces cerevisiae 2μ FLP Recombinase Target sites (one wt and one mutant FRT site)
- one remaining bacteriophage P1 Cre recombinase target site (loxP site)
- two adjacent copies of the chicken β-globin 5' DNase I hypersensitive site 4 (5'HS4) insulator core sequence. Insulators are DNA sequences which possess the ability to protect expressing genes from inappropriate signals emanating from their surrounding environment by acting as barriers that prevent the advance of nearby condensed chromatin that may otherwise silence expression.
- a splice acceptor (SA) for linking the rtTA-IRES-puromycin to the endogenous ROSA26 promoter.
This multisite Gateway expression vector, by co-transfection of a FlpE plasmid, can be targeted to the ROSA26 locus of G4 ROSALUC ES cells using a trap-coupled RMCE approach, hereby restoring neomycin resistance. The absence of the loxP-flanked stop casette compared to pCOIN DV-derived expression vectors causes ROSA26-based rtTA expression and puromycin resistance. Inducible expression of OSKM will only be achieved upon doxycycline administration and can be monitored by the induced reporter expression (EGFP-LUC).
The coding sequences in the OSKM cassette are connected via the self-cleaving T2A and F2A peptides, fulfilling the same role as an IRES, but with a much shorter sequence.
The G4 ROSALUC ES cells (LMBP 10507CB) are available at BCCM/GeneCorner as well.
Other name of the plasmid is Cre ex. pCOIN DV OSKM.
