Depositor Comments

We constructed a Renilla luciferase reporter for let-7 miRNA harboring A114-N40 (a protected poly(A) sequence internalized by a 40 nt unrelated sequence) followed by the hammerhead ribozyme sequence (HhR) that generates the 3' end by self-cleavage.

Unstable when transformed and so any retransformation must be checked by digest or sequencing before use. In strain MV1184, it is stable as a glycerol stock.
