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: pSCGALST; pATHIL6HIFNG; pCAGGS
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: 1) pATHIL6HIFNG was NdeI opened (filled in with Klenow DNA polymerase); 2) The EaeI fragment (filled in with Klenow DNA polymerase) from pSCGALST, containing the mature human α2,6-sialyltransferase gene (hST6GalI), was inserted, resulting in the intermediate construct pATHIL6HIFNG-ST10; 3) pCAGGS was XhoI/MscI opened and the mature hST6GalI sequence, preceded by the signal sequence of the human interferon γ gene (hIFNG), was cloned as a HindIII (filled in with Klenow DNA polymerase)/XhoI fragment from pATHIL6HIFNG-ST10, leading to pCAIFNSTstop; 4) Finally, the termination codon at the 5' end of the hST6GalI coding sequence was deleted and a unique NotI site was introduced via site-specific mutagenesis using the synthetic oligonucleotide 5'-GCCAGGACCCAGCGGCCGCCATGGGG-3', resulting in pCAhIFNGSTm.
pCAhIFNGSTm is useful for highly efficient expression of human α2,6-sialyltransferase under the control of the chicken β-actin/rabbit β-globin hybrid promoter (AG) 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 LT727221.1.
The nucleotide sequence of hST6GalI corresponds with the Genbank accession number X62822.1.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAIFNSTΔstop.
