Depositor Comments

The construct Ce-age-1p::Ce-age-1(3,549bp)::Ce-unc-54t, contained in plasmid pPV454, was assembled by overlap extension PCR. An 873 bp segment of Ce-age-1 5′ region was amplified from genomic DNA and fused to 2,376 bp of the 5′ region of Ce-age-1, amplified from cDNA, using the overlapping primers Ceage1p-cDNA-F and -R (below). This was subsequently fused to the remainder of the Ce-age-1 cDNA with the plasmid Pdpy-30-age-1, a gift from Yuichi Iino (University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan), as template and using the overlapping primers Ceage1-Cat-F and -R (below). Finally, the promoter and full-length 3,549 bp Ce-age-1 cDNA were fused to 765 bp of the Ce-unc-54 3′ region (terminator), amplified from Pdpy-30-age-1 template, using the overlapping primers Ceage1-unc54-F and -R (below). The PCR product was T/A cloned into the pCR4-TOPO vector (Life Technologies) and the insert fully sequenced.
