Depositor Comments

The cDNA encoding bovine BARK1 residues Gly495 to Leu689 was amplified using PCR to construct a minigene casette with newly engineered 5' and 3' ends (see Author's map). The 5' end contained an EcoRI site for subcloning, followed by the kozak sequence 5'-GCCGCCACCATGG-3'. A bclI site was inserted at the 3' end immediately following the stop codon. The final BARK1 minigene construct contains the 3'UTR of the human beta-globin gene and a polyadenylation signal.
