Depositor Comments

RARa was PCR-amplified using GCAGAAGACCCCATGGCCAGCAACAGCAGCTCCT as the 5' primer and CCGGAATTCCAACATTTCCTGGATGAGAGGCGG as the 3' primer. The PCR product was digested with BbsI and EcoRI, and subcloned into the NcoI/EcoRI sites of pSlax21 to generate pSlax21-DNhRAR. The ClaI fragment of pSlax21-DNhRAR was then subcloned into the RCASBP(A) vector.
