The C/EBPbeta gene encodes 3 in-frame translational isoforms (LAP*, LAP, and LIP). LAP is the predominant activating isoform expressed in most cells, and this plasmid is designed to express the LAP isoform of the protein. The construct does not include the extra 21 codons at the N terminus that are present in LAP*. The complete insert (not just the ORF) includes a Kozak box sequence at the N terminus.
For more information on the C/EBPbeta isoforms, please see the original reference:
Descombes, P., and Schibler, U. A liver-enriched transcriptional activator protein, LAP, and a transcriptional inhibitory protein, LIP, are translated from the same mRNA. Cell 67:569-579 (1991).
