Depositor Comments

This tet-inducible vector was constructed by cloning an XbaI/HpaI fragment containing the tTA and the
inducible promoter from pBStind into NheI/Eco47(AfeI) sites of pCL-CG. The inducible cassette contains the tet dependent
transactivator (tTA) at its 5' end and an
inducible promoter at its 3' end. Expression
of the GFP gene is controlled by the inducible promoter,
which contains a minimal promoter (mp) and seven
copies of Tet operator (tetO). The tTA gene is constitutively
expressed under the control of the CMV promoter.
Following transduction, the constitutively
expressed tTA (tetRVP16) binds to tet(O)- mp and
induces the transcription of a high level of GFP mRNA.
In contrast, binding of doxycycline to the tTA induces
conformational changes that prevent it from binding to
the tet(O)- minimal promoter and consequently leads to
little or no GFP expression.
