Depositor Comments

pBS302 carries two directly repeated loxP sites flanking a synthetic DNA sequence designated "STOP." The lox-square STOP cassette sits on a NotI fragment that can excised and gel-purified for injection into fertilized zygotes. The STOP sequence is designed to thwart productive expression of a downstream gene under the control of an upstream promoter (to be inserted in the SfiI-SpeI polylinker region). It will have been removed in cells expressing Cre, or in descendants of cells that previously had expressed Cre, because of Cre-mediated recombination at the loxP sites. The STOP sequence is the same as used to regulate T-Ag expression in pBS241.
