  • Vector backbone
  • Modifications to backbone
    The plasmid pG5ElbLuc was prepared from pG5E1bCAT (23) by replacing the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene (EcoRI and Sty I fragment) with the firefly luciferase gene (from pGEM-Luc) as a 1745-bp HindIII-StuI blunt-end fragment. The GAL4 binding sites were removed from pG5ElbLuc as a Pst I and Kpn I fragment and replaced with a double-stranded 20-mer oligonucleotide that contains the Elb promoter TATA element (5'-GAGGGTATATAATGTGGTAC- 3' and 5'-CACATTATATACCCTCTGCA-3') to create the plasmid pMycOElbLuc.
