The human OCT4 promoter (hOCT4pr, from 67539 to 71490 in human DNA sequence with accession number AP000509) was amplified by PCR with primers: hOCT4pr-F (5'−TTCCCATGTCAAGTAAGTGGGGTGG-3') and hOCT4pr-R (5'-CGAGAAGGCAAAATCTGAAGCCAGG-3') using human genomic DNA (Promega G3041) as a template. The fragment was cloned into a TOPO vector and the hOCT4 promoter was subsequently cloned into vector pEGFP1 by insertion into HindIII and AgeI restriction enzyme sites upstream of EGFP.
