Vector backboneRCASBP (A)
- Backbone size w/o insert (bp) 11600
Vector typeRetroviral ; Avian expression
Growth in Bacteria
Gene/Insert nameRAR alpha (dom neg)
SpeciesH. sapiens (human)
MutationDominant negative. Truncated at aa403, so lacks the C-terminal transcriptional activation domain.
Entrez GeneRARA (a.k.a. NR1B1, RAR)
- Cloning method Restriction Enzyme
- 5′ cloning site ClaI (not destroyed)
- 3′ cloning site ClaI (not destroyed)
- 5′ sequencing primer n/a (Common Sequencing Primers)
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.
