Cloned DNA: Human upstream of N-ras cDNA (UNR, CSDE1); isoform 1
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
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: 1) the hUNR cDNA was amplified by PCR; 2) the NotI/XhoI digested PCR amplicon was fused to the E-tag of a NotI/XhoI opened pCAGGS-based expression plasmid.
pCAGGS-E-hUNR is useful for highly efficient expression of hUNR under the control of the AG promoter and the hCMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
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 LT726829.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the hUNR cDNA corresponds with the Genbank accession number NM_001007553.1 which was adapted according to the reverse primer J described in Schepens et al. (2007).
Other name of the plasmid is pcUNR.
