|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed by inserting human Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase cDNA (hCuZnSOD) as a BamHI fragment from pD5-neoCuZnSOD into the BalI digested pCAGGS vector (all sites were filled in with Pfu DNA polymerase).
pCAGGShCuZnSOD is useful for highly efficient expression of human CuZnSOD under the control of the chicken β-actin/rabbit β-globin hybrid promoter (AG) and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
The AG promoter sequence consists of the chicken β-actin promoter, the first exon and part of the first intron (that seems to have a strong enhancer-like activity) linked to a rabbit β-globin fragment, consisting of a 3' part of the second intron (inclusive a branch point which is required for normal splicing reactions) and a 5' part of the third exon.
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 the hCuZnSOD gene corresponds with the Genbank accession number X02317.1.
The border sequences of the human CuZnSOD insert have been sequenced by LMBP.
