    Mammalian Expression

Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
    Ampicillin, 100 μg/mL
  • Growth Temperature
  • Growth Strain(s)
  • Copy number
    High Copy


  • Gene/Insert name
    IkB alpha M
  • Alt name
  • Alt name
    I kappa B alpha mutant
  • Species
    M. musculus (mouse)
  • Mutation
    Dominant-negative mutant. Many signal transduction pathways resulting in NF-B activation culminate in a serine phosphorylation of IkB on residues 32 and 36. Phosphorylation of the COOH-terminal PEST sequence has been implicated in constitutive turnover of IkB. We combined the NH2- and COOH-terminal phosphorylation mutants into a single cDNA for this plasmid.

Depositor Comments

IkB alpha M was generated by digestion of plasmids pCMX-IkBS32/36A and pCMX-IkBMutF with Eco NI and Bst EII and ligation of the small S32/36A fragment to the large vector/IkBMutF fragment.
