Plasmid name: p1168hIL6mCRE-C/EBP-luc+ (LMBP 4497)
|Price category:||Cat. 1 (cf. price list)|
|Status:||GeneCorner core plasmid|
(View with Genome Compiler)
|Cloned DNA:||Photinus pyralis (firefly) luciferase gene (LUC); mutated coding region (LUCm; luc(+))|
|Promoter:||Human interleukin 6 promoter (IL6); mutated sequence|
|Terminator:||Simian virus 40 polyadenylation signal (SV40 polyA)
Synthetic polyadenylation signal (polyA)
|Selection marker:||Ampicillin (amp)|
|Replicon:||Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Phage f1 origin
|Host range:||Escherichia coli
|Parental clone:||pGL3-Basic; pMahIL6P|
|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed by inserting the XmaI (SmaI)/HindIII fragment of pMahIL6P, containing the human IL6 promoter, between the XmaI (SmaI) site and HindIII site of pGL3-Basic.
The binding site for the cyclic AMP-responsive element-binding protein (CRE) transcription factor of the human IL6 promoter and the binding site for the CAAT enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP) transcription factor of the hIL6 promoter were abolished by site-directed mutagenesis, creating respectively an additional BamHI site and a unique EcoRV site.
Mammalian cells can be directly transfected transiently with the plasmid. However, promoter regulation can be better evaluated when the mammalian cells are stably transfected.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727232.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the genomic human IL6 DNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number AC073072.11, except for the C nucleotide at promoter position -174 (polymorphism mutant) which was changed into a G nucleotide (wild type).
Other name of the plasmid is p1168huIL6Pluc+CRE_NFIL6SalImut.
