Depositor Comments

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.
