Plasmid name: pCAGGS-Flag-IKKalpha-deltaLZ (LMBP 5489)
|Price category:||Cat. 1 (cf. price list)|
|Status:||GeneCorner core plasmid|
(View with Genome Compiler)

Human cytomegalovirus immediate early promoter (CMV-IE); enhancer only
Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
|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-FLAGmA20; pCAGGS|
|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed by ligating the three following fragments: 1) the 2138 bp KpnI-XhoI digested PCR fragment, containing the hIKKα-ΔLZ coding sequence; 2) the 2473 bp KpnI-FspI fragment from pCAGGS-FLAGmA20; 3) the 2369 bp XhoI-FspI-ApaI fragment from pCAGGS.
As a result of the deletion of the leucin zipper structure, a NheI site was created. Consequently, no dimerisation can occur.
pCAGGS-Flag-IKKalpha-deltaLZ is useful for highly efficient expression of hIKKα-ΔLZ under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT726916.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the hIKKα cDNA corresponds with the Genbank accession number NM_001278.3.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGS-Flag-IKKα- ΔLZ.

|Authenticity test:||Restriction enzyme pattern analysed at GeneCorner: Alw44I, ApaI/PvuII, KpnI, NcoI/NheI, NotI/XhoI and PvuI/XbaI.
As compared to the compiled nucleotide sequence, the restriction site analysis pattern revealed that ApaI only cuts twice instead of three times. The ApaI site at position 5758 could not be experimentally confirmed.
