Cloned DNA: Human serotonin 5-HT1α receptor (h5HT1AR)
Promoter: Mouse Mx promoter
Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
Phage SP6 promoter
binding site:
Ribosome binding site (RBS) of the Escherichia coli lac Z gene (lacZ)
Terminator: Simian virus 40 polyadenylation signal (SV40 polyA)
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli
Mammalian cells
Parental clone: pSP64MxpA; pSP64H5HT1AR
Further information: pSP64H5HT1AR was opened with TfiI and treated with Klenow DNA polymerase. After BamHI digestion of the blunted fragment, the human 5HT1α receptor fragment was isolated. pSP64MxpA was cleaved with XbaI, filled in with Klenow DNA polymerase, and after BglI digest the fragment containing the mouse Mx promoter was isolated. pSP64MxpA was also digested with the combination BamHI / BglI in order to isolate the fragment containing the SV40 intron and polyadenylation signals. The three isolated fragments were ligated resulting in the plasmid pMxh5HT1AR in which the human serotonin 5HT1α receptor is under control of the mouse Mx promoter and SV40 processing signals. Cell lines transfected with this plasmid allow functional expression of the receptor in L929s(A), after induction of the Mx promoter with 1000U/ml mIFNα or mIFNβ.
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.
Other name of the plasmid is pMx5HT1A.
