Host range: Escherichia coli
Mammalian cells; SV40 permissive cells
Parental clone: pCAGGS-Etag-INCA
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by inserting a NotI-BglII PCR fragment, containing the hCASP-2 coding sequence, between the NotI and BglII site of pCAGGS-Etag-INCA.
pCAGGS-E-hCASP-2 is useful for highly efficient expression of hCASP-2, fused in phase to the N-terminal E-tag, under the control of the AG promoter and the hCMV-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.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGS-E-hCASPASE-2.
