|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed by converting pcDNA3 to a Gateway destination vector as follows: 1) The Gateway reading frame cassette A (rfA, from Invitrogen) was amplified with primers containing a HindIII site, the FLAG tag and an XbaI site. 2) The PCR product and the vector pcDNA3 (Invitrogen) were digested with HindIII and XbaI and ligated together, resulting in pdcDNA-FLAG.
pdcDNA-FLAG is a Gateway destination vector, containing the ccdB gene flanked by the bacteriophage λ attR recombination sites.
pdcDNA-FLAG is designed for fusing a gene of interest to the N-terminal FLAG epitope tag according to the Gateway Cloning Technology (Invitrogen) and for high-level, constitutive, native expression of this gene in mammalian cells under control of the human CMV-IE promoter and enhancer.
A Gateway entry clone, containing the gene of interest flanked by the λ attL recombination sites, recombines with the attR sites of the destination vector, replacing the ccdB gene. Standard E. coli strains with the unreacted destination vector or with the by-product plasmid retaining the ccdB gene will fail to grow. Thus, this negative selection provides high-efficiency recovery of only the desired clones. The chloramphenicol resistance gene located between the two attR sites permits counterselection.
This Gateway destination vector is compatible with the human orfeome library which is also available at BCCM/GeneCorner.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727164.1.
The absence of a second enhancer in the SV40 early promoter was shown by sequence analysis at LMBP.
The region between the ccdB gene and the f1 ori was also sequenced by LMBP.
Other names of the plasmid are pDEST-FLAG and pdcDNAflag.
