Depositor Comments

A 2000-bp region of the human Blimp-1 promoter was isolated from human (Raji cell) genomic DNA by PCR using 5-ATTTTAGGGTTGCCTGGCTAAGCC-3 as the forward and 5-GTCACGGCAGCACTTTGTCTGTGT-3 as the reverse primers. The PCR product obtained was ligated into the pcR2.1 TOPO cloning vector (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA) and then subcloned into pGL3-basic (Promega, Madison, WI) using SacI and XhoI sites. The promoter construct was sequenced to verify that the proper sequence was amplified.
