|Replicon:||Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Simian virus 40 bidirectional origin (SV40)
|Host range:||Escherichia coli
Mammalian cells; SV40 permissive cells
|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed as follows: the dominant negative T17N 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-DN is useful for highly efficient expression of the dominant negative mutant of human Rac1 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 LT727151.1.
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-hRacDN and pCAGGSE-hRac1DN.
