(View with Genome Compiler)
Reverse tetracycline-responsive transcriptional activator (rtTA)|
|Promoter:||Human cytomegalovirus immediate early promoter (CMV-IE); minimal promoter with tet operator (CMVT)|
|Internal ribosome entry site (IRES) of the encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) polyprotein gene|
|Terminator:||Bovine growth hormone polyadenylation signal (BGH polyA)
Escherichia coli rrnB operon T1 terminator
Escherichia coli rrnB operon T2 terminator
|Selection marker:||Neomycin (neo; G418; kanamycin (kan))

|Host range:||Escherichia coli
|Further information:||The plasmid is a multisite Gateway entry vector, designed as a 5' entry clone (with attL4-attR1 sites) for the multisite approach using the pCOIN DV vector.
The plasmid contains:
- a reverse tetracyclin transactivator (rtTA)
- an IRES-puromycin-pA drug-selectable cassette to select for rtTA expressing cells after Cre excision of the pCOIN DV vector.
- a tetracycline responsive element (TRE), consisting of the minimal human CMV promoter, combined with the tet operator.
- two adjacent copies of the chickenβ-globin 5' DNase I hypersensitive site 4 (5'HS4) insulator core sequence. Insulators are DNA sequences which possess the ability to protect expressing genes from inappropriate signals emanating from their surrounding environment by acting as barriers that prevent the advance of nearby condensed chromatin that may otherwise silence expression.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT726877.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the rtTA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number U89930.1.

|Latest sequence update:||08/07/2013|
|Authenticity test:||Restriction enzyme pattern analysed at GeneCorner: ApaI, HindIII, PvuI, PvuII and SacII.
As compared to the compiled nucleotide sequence, the restriction enzyme pattern revealed that the plasmid is about 150 to 200 bp shorter. This fragment is probably located between the Tn903 neomycin resistance and the pMB1 ori.
|History of deposit:||This plasmid was deposited by Dr L. Haenebalcke(1) (2) and Prof. Dr J. Haigh(1) (2).
