Cloned DNA: Human manganese superoxide dismutase cDNA (MnSOD); mitochondrial targeting sequence (MTS)
Pig phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathion peroxidase cDNA (PHGPx, GPx4)
Promoter: Chicken β-actin/rabbit β-globin hybrid promoter (AG)
Human cytomegalovirus immediate early promoter (CMV-IE); enhancer only
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)
Polyoma virus origin
Host range: Escherichia coli
Mammalian cells; SV40 permissive cells
Parental clone: pCAGGSPy; pCAGGSpPHGPx; pCAGGShMnSOD
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: (i) the MTS of the human MnSOD cDNA was amplified by PCR on pCAGGShMnSOD; (ii) the pig PHGPx cDNA was obtained from pCAGGSpPHGPx; (iii) the human MnSOD MTS and the pig PHGPx cDNA were fused by PCR and the amplicon was inserted into the pCAGGSPy vector.
pCAGGSMtPHGPx is useful for highly efficient expression of pig mitochondrial PHGPx under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
The nucleotide sequence of the human MnSOD cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number Y00472.1, with minor corrections in the 5' UTR and with the Ala->Val polymorphism in the MTS. The differences were confirmed by sequence analysis at the Department for Molecular Biomedical Research (VIB, Belgium).
The nucleotide sequence of the pig PHGPx cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number X76009.1.
Name mentioned in Rubio et al. (2012) is pCAGGS_ph-mt-GPX4.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGS/MtPHGPx.
