Alternate plasmid name: K15-HSV-TK-pGL3
The K15 promoter was cloned from C57 BL/SJ mouse genomic DNA (isolated from tail) by PCR using the Supermix High Fidelity Kit (GIBCO). The sequences of the forward and reverse primers were
respectively. XhoI and EcoRI restriction sequences were added to the 5' end of forward and reverse primers respectively for subsequent cloning of the PCR product into PBK/CMV vector (Stratagene). The promoter fragment was then subcloned into pGL3-Basic (Promega) to create plasmid K15(-4.8)-pGL3 (Addgene plasmid #44264).
The HSV-1 TK reporter gene cDNA was then excised from a TK/PBSIIKS plasmid, using NotI and SalI, and cloned downstream of the K15 promoter, replacing luciferase.
The entire K15 promoter-HSV-TK transgene can be released by digestion with XhoI/SalI.
