Cloned DNA: 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
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; pcDNA3pPHGPx
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by inserting the pig PHGPx cDNA as a KpnI (blunted with T4 DNA polymerase)/EcoRV fragment from pcDNA3pPHGPx into the MscI site of pCAGGS.
pCAGGSpPHGPx is useful for highly efficient expression of pig cytosolic PHGPx 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 LT727207.1.
The borders of the inserted fragment have been sequenced 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_p-cGPX4.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGS/pPHGPx.
