Cloned DNA: Human interferon β gene (IFNB, IFNB1)
Promoter: Phage SP6 promoter
Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
binding site:
Terminator: Human interferon α 14 gene terminator (IFNA)
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli
Parental clone: pSP64GMT; pSPNHIFNB4
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: a SfiI-NotI linker was inserted between the HindIII and XbaI sites of pSP64GMT. As a result, the XbaI site was lost. After insertion of a XhoI linker between the StuI sites of the new polylinker, the human IFNβ gene was inserted as a XhoI fragment from pSPNHIFNB4.
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 LT727546.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the hIFNβ cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number V00546.1.
Other names of the plasmid are pSP64SHIFNBNT and pSP64GHIFNB1.
