Depositor Comments

phpRL-BCL2-FL(pA) includes a 143-bp stable RNA hairpin located upstream of renilla luciferase, BCL2 5'UTR and firefly luciferase. See plasmid map link above for more details.

This plasmid is one of several reporter constructs created to assess potential IRES activity of the BCL2 5'UTR. The hairpin in this construct inhibits translation of renilla luciferase and to a lesser extent translation of firefly luciferase.

Please note that Addgene's sequencing results differ from the full plasmid sequence provided by the depositing laboratory. These differences do not affect the function of the plasmid.
