Depositor Comments

To generate a fusion
gene consisting of cre recombinase and the AR LBD, plasmid
p258 was digested with BglII and MluI and the hAR fragment coding for LBD was isolated. This fragment was cloned into
pCMV-CRE-M(BglII) by digesting two separate aliquots of
pCMV-CRE-M(BglII) with ScaI/BglII or with ScaI/MluI. The
ligation of these three fragments resulted in the generation of
