Depositor Comments

MG15-Luc was cloned by inserting a HindIII-EcoRI fragment containing p53-binding elements (Kern et al Science 1992 May 8;256(5058):827-30) into the Hindlll-EcoRI sites of pBluescript II SK(+). A 200 bp EcoRI-BamHI fragment containing the polyoma promoter, and a 2.6 kb SacI luciferase cassette without promoter elements, were then cloned downstream.

MG15 contains 15 copies of a mutated p53-binding sequence. Addgene has confirmed the presence of 8 of these copies.

Direct repeats of the oligonucleotide MG (5'-CCTTAATGGACTTTAATGG-
3') were used for the
p53 nonbinding control sequences.
