Cloned DNA: Human NF-κB inhibitor kinase α cDNA (IKKα, CHUK, IKBKA); with mutated nuclear localization signal sequence (IKKα-ΔNLS)
FLAG epitope 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-FLAGmA20; pCAGGS
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by ligating the three following fragments: 1) the 2240 bp KpnI-XhoI digested PCR fragment, containing the hIKKα-ΔNLS coding sequence; 2) the 2473 bp KpnI-FspI fragment from pCAGGS-FLAGmA20; 3) the 2369 bp XhoI-FspI-ApaI fragment from pCAGGS.
As compared to the wt hIKKα cDNA, the lysine (K) codons at position 235, 236 and 237 were replaced by alanine (A) codons, creating a unique NotI site.
pCAGGS-Flag-IKKalpha-deltaNLS is useful for highly efficient expression of hIKKα-ΔNLS 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 LT726917.1.
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-ΔNLS.

***: Start codon.
+++: Termination codon.
^  : Mutated nucleotide.
Punctuation indicates reading frame.
Authenticity test: Restriction enzyme pattern analysed at GeneCorner: Alw44I, ApaI, 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 5860 could not be experimentally confirmed.
