Cloned DNA: Human B-cell leukemia/lymphoma 2α cDNA (BCL2, Bcl-2)
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; pCRhBCL2
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by inserting the human BCL2 cDNA as an EcoRI fragment from pCRhBCL2 into the EcoRI digested pCAGGS vector.
The orientation of the inserted gene, sense relative to the AG promoter, was confirmed by a BamHI digestion.
pCAGGShBcl-2 is useful for highly efficient expression of human BCL2 under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-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 LT727135.1.
The human BCL2 EcoRI fragment was sequenced at the Department of Biomedical Molecular Biology (Ghent University, Belgium) and found identical to the DNA sequence described in the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number BC027258.1, except for position 189 of the coding sequence, resulting in a silent mutation.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGSBcl-2.
