Cloned DNA: Human Rac family small GTPase 1 cDNA (RAC1, Rac-1, TC-25, GeneID 5879); constitutive active G12V mutant
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: the constitutive active G12V mutant of the human RAC1 cDNA was amplified (PCR) and cloned, in frame with an N-terminal E-tag, into pCAGGS that was cut with NotI and XmaI.
pCAGGS-EhRac1-DP is useful for highly efficient expression of the constitutive active or dominant positive mutant of human Rac1 under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-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 LT727152.1.1
The nucleotide sequence of the wt RAC1 cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number AF498964.1.
Other names of the plasmid are pCAGGSE-hRacDP and pCAGGSE-hRac1DP.
