The firefly luciferase vector was modified from pGL3 Control Vector (Promega), such that a short sequence containing multiple cloning sites (5'-AGCTCTATACGCGTCTCAAGCTTACTGCTAGC GT-3') was inserted into the XbaI site immediately downstream from the stop codon.
3'UTR segments of target genes can be inserted into this vector to test for their effects on mRNA stability.
