Cloned DNA: Human N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I cDNA (GlcNAc-TI, MGAT1)
Promoter: Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
binding site:
Ribosome binding site (RBS) of the Escherichia coli lac Z gene (lacZ)
Terminator: -
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli
Parental clone: pUC18
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: 1) the human N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I cDNA (hGlcNAc-TI) was obtained after PCR on colon carcinoma gDNA that contains no introns; 2) the obtained PCR fragment, carrying a 3' sticky 'A' nucleotide due to the use of Pfu DNA polymerase for the PCR procedure, was cloned into pUC18, previously digested with HindII and tailed with dideoxythymidine triphosphate using terminal transferase according to Holton et al. (1991).
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 the human GlcNAc-TI cDNA corresponds with the Genbank accession number M55621.1.

Sequence detail:
Nucleotide sequence at the start of the human GlcNAc-TI coding sequence:

   pUC18 -->   --> PCR fragment
   XbaI  --- ^        *
         blunt-ended HindII

^: T-residue, due to tailing.
*: Start codon of the human GlcNAc-TI coding sequence.

Nucleotide sequence at the end of the human GlcNAc-TI coding sequence:

             PCR fragment -->   --> pUC18
            *       HindII    ^ ---
                    SalI        blunt-ended HindII

^: 3' sticky A-residue, due to the PCR procedure.
*: Termination codon of the human GlcNAc-TI coding sequence.
