Cloned DNA: Mouse cysteinyl aspartate specific proteinase 7 cDNA (caspase-7, CASP-7, Casp7, Mch3)
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; pGAD-mCASP-7
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by inserting the mCASP-7 cDNA as a PvuII/SmaI fragment from pGAD-mCASP-7 into the MscI (BalI) opened pCAGGS vector.
pCAGGS-mCASP-7 is useful for highly efficient expression of mCASP-7 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 LT727401.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the mCASP-7 cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number Y13088.1.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGS B64#4(sense).
