Depositor Comments

The expression plasmid pCGN-BCL-6Δ was constructed by digesting the BCL-6 cDNA with EcoRI, deleting the 3' region, and cloning the remaining cDNA into pCGN. The BCL-6Δ is missing four of six zinc fingers and does not bind to a consensus BCL-6 probe in a gel shift assay (A. L. Dent, unpublished data).

Note, the cloning and ligation adds the following residues after aa595 of BCL6: RYQAYRYRRPGYR
