This is a CONTROL luciferase reporter with the TCF/LEF sites of Super8XTOPflash (construct M50, Addgene Plasmid #12456) being mutated.
There are 6 mutated TCF/LEF binding sites that were cloned into the pGL3 vector (Promega), which contains a minimal promoter followed by a firefly luciferase open reading frame. This 134bp fragment was gene synthesized and cloned into the ASP718 and XMA-1 sites of the vector.
Note: This plasmid was published as M51 Super 8x FOPFlash, but the plasmid actually contains 6 TCF/LEF sites.
These plasmids were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the Principal Investigator, cite the article in which the plasmids were described, and include Addgene in the Materials and Methods of your future publications.
