Cloned DNA: Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene (cat)
Promoter: Mouse interleukin 6 promoter (IL6)
Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
binding site:
Terminator: Simian virus 40 polyadenylation signal (SV40 polyA)
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli; preferably recombination-deficient strains
Mammalian cells
Parental clone: pUC18gMIL6; pBLCAT5
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: the BamHI-BanII (blunted with T4 DNA exonuclease) fragment of pUC18gMIL6, containing the mouse IL6 promoter, was inserted between the BamHI-BglII (filled-in with Klenow DNA polymerase) sites of pBLCAT5, hereby replacing the TK promoter.
pBLmIL6CAT contains the SV40 small t-antigen splicing signal.
pBLmIL6CAT contains also three SV40 polyadenylation segments. Hence, the possibility might exist that the plasmid could loose information by homologous recombination.
When cloning a fragment downstream from the lac promoter it may be advisable to use lacI(q) strains in order to prevent fortuitous expression of a possibly noxious polypeptide.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727418.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the genomic mouse interleukin 6 DNA corresponds with the Genbank accession number M20572.1.
