Cloned DNA: Human TRIF-related adapter molecule cDNA (TICAM2, hTRAM)
E-tag; N-terminal
Promoter: Chicken β-actin/rabbit β-globin hybrid promoter (AG)
Human cytomegalovirus immediate early promoter (CMV-IE); enhancer only
Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
binding site:
Terminator: Rabbit β-globin polyadenylation signal (β-globin polyA)
Simian virus 40 polyadenylation signal (SV40 polyA)
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Simian virus 40 bidirectional origin (SV40)
Host range: Escherichia coli
Mammalian cells; SV40 permissive cells
Parental clone: pCAGGS-EmMyD88L
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: the human TRIF-related adapter molecule coding sequence (hTRAM) was inserted as a NotI/XhoI PCR fragment between the NotI and XhoI sites of pCAGGS-EmMyD88L, in frame with the N-terminal E-tag.
The XbaI site located in the AG promoter sequence is removed (filled-in and religated).
pCAGGS-EhTRAM is useful for highly efficient expression of hTRAM under the control of the chicken β-actin/rabbit β-globin hybrid promoter (AG) 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 LT726979.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the hTRAM cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number AY232653.1.
Other names of the plasmid are pCAGGS-EhTRAM and pCAGGS-E-hTRAM(zXbaI).
