- Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 3959
- Total vector size (bp) 4658
Modifications to backboneWe constructed pMitoTimer by inserting the BamHI-NotI fragments of pTimer-1 (Clontech) into pDsRed2-Mito (Clontech) vector digested with BamHI and NotI using T4 ligase (New England Biolabs) following DNA isolation by using the Qiaex II gel extraction kit (Qiagen). The mitochondrial targeting sequence of the human cytochrome c oxidase subunit VIII (Cox8) gene from pDsRed2-Mito was then fused to the mutant DsRed1-E5 on the N-terminus.
