Depositor Comments

The 3' UTR of the mouse Hmga2 cDNA (BC052158) was subcloned into pCR2.1-TOPO (Invitrogen) for site-directed mutagenesis. To disrupt each let-7 complementary site, the nucleotides that paired to nucleotides 3 and 5 of the miRNA were substituted (see Author's map), using the Quikchange site-directed mutagenesis kit (Stratagene). The UTR fragment was then cloned back into the vector containing the Hmga2 cDNA (pCMV•SPORT6.1). To construct the mammalian expression vectors, Hmga2 inserts were excised from the pCMV•SPORT6.1 constructs using EcoRI restriction sites and cloned into pcDNA3.1 (Invitrogen).
