Further information: The plasmid was created by cloning the TagBFP coding sequence and the Gateway recombination cassette into the pCI vector.
TagBFP is a monomeric blue fluorescent protein generated by site-specific and random mutagenesis of TagRFP. TagBFP possesses bright blue fluorescence with excitation/emission maxima at 402 and 457 nm, characterized by high photostability and extremely high pH-stability.
This mammalian expression vector contains a chimeric intron downstream of the hCMV-IE promoter and enhancer which is composed of the 5´-donor site from the first intron of the human β-globin gene and the branch and 3´-acceptor site from the intron between the leader and the body of an immunoglobulin gene heavy chain variable region. The sequences of the donor and acceptor sites, along with the branchpoint site, have been changed to match the consensus sequences for splicing. Transfection studies have demonstrated that the presence of an intron flanking the cDNA insert frequently increases the level of gene expression. The intron is located 5´ to the cDNA insert in order to prevent utilization of possible cryptic 5´-donor splice sites within the cDNA sequence.
This Gateway destination vector is compatible with the human orfeome library which is also available at BCCM/GeneCorner.
The nucleotide sequence of the parental pCI plasmid corresponds with Genbank accession number U47119.2.
Other name of the plasmid is pCi N-BFP2 DEST.
