Depositor Comments

RCAS dnTcf4en virus was constructed using the mouse Tcf4B splice variant (gift of G. Dressler), as the chick Tcf4B splice variant is expressed in the developing limbs. The dominant-negative (dn) form was created by deleting amino acids 2–50, resulting in the production of a putative dominant-negative protein unable to bind and be activated by beta-catenin, but able to bind DNA via its C-terminal HMG box. The repressor domain from the Drosophila engrailed gene was fused in-frame to the 3′end of the dnTcf4 construct in the shuttle vector pSlax13 and then subcloned into retroviral vector RCAS(BP) A.
