Further information: This plasmid is useful for highly efficient expression of genes under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
The AG promoter sequence consists of the chicken β-actin promoter, the first exon and part of the first intron (that seems to have a strong enhancer-like activity) linked to a rabbit β-globin fragment, consisting of a 3' part of the second intron (inclusive a branch point which is required for normal splicing reactions) and a 5' part of the third exon.
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 LT727518.1 except for the adjustments due to the implementation of the next-generation sequencing results.

Latest sequence update: 05/11/2019
Authenticity test: Restriction enzyme pattern analysed at GeneCorner: BglII, EcoRI, NcoI, SacII and XhoI.

This plasmid has also been fully sequenced. For some nucleotides, different NGS results contradict each other, in which case the sequence info from the depositor was kept.
Class: Recombinant plasmid
Type: Plasmid
History of deposit: This plasmid was deposited by Prof. Dr J. Miyazaki(1).
