Parental clone: pcDNA1; pcDNA1-hFADD
Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: the human MSK1 coding sequence, amplified from the human EST clone #AA158571 (I.M.A.G.E. consortium) as a NotI/EcoRI PCR fragment, was fused to the E-tag of pcDNA1-hFADD (NotI/DraIII fragment) and ligated to the DraIII/EcoRI fragment of pcDNA1.
pMSK1-E is a shuttle vector designed for stable or high-level transient expression of human MSK1 in mammalian cells. The inserted gene is expressed under control of the human CMV-IE promoter and enhancer and the SV40 polyadenylation site.
A small HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) fragment (29 nucleotides) between the hCMV-IE and T7 promoter sequences has an enhancer function.
The T7 and SP6 promoters can be used for in vitro transcription of the cDNA insert.
The presence of the polyoma and SV40 origins of replication enables the vector to replicate episomally in mammalian cells expressing large T-antigen (e.g. WOB, COS cells).
The supF tRNA suppressor gene is used for selection in E. coli MC1061[p3]. It is recommended to select on both ampicillin and tetracycline containing media.
The M13 origin is useful for synthesis of single-stranded DNA upon infection with the M13 helper phage.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727061.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the human MSK1 cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number AF074393.1.
Other names of the plasmid are pcDNA1-hMSK1 and pcdnamskI.
