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: pCAGGS2
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by inserting a 2.4 kb XhoI-BglII PCR fragment, containing the full-length mouse A20 coding sequence, into the XhoI-BglII opened pCAGGS2 vector.
pCAGGS-FLAGmA20 is useful for highly efficient expression of mouse A20 under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
The expression cassette is provided with an N-terminal FLAG epitope tag, followed by a KpnI site.
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 LT727292.1.
Referring to the sequence analysis results of the Department of Biomedical Molecular Biology (Ghent University, Belgium), the nucleotide sequence of the mouse A20 cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number U19463.1, except for nucleotide position 2096 of the coding sequence: the T-residue is substituted by a C- residue, resulting in a Leu/Pro replacement.
Name mentioned in Heyninck et al. (2003) is pCAGGS-FLAG-A20.
Other names of the plasmid are pCAGGS-FLAGmA20(1-775), pCAGGS-Flag-mA20 and pCAGGS-007-002#2.
