Depositor Comments

The pSAR-MT inducible
expression plasmid was constructed as follows. Two
oligonucleotides (5'-GATCTCGAGCTCCCTGCA-3' and 5'-GGGAGCTCGA-3') were annealed, and the resulting fragment was cloned into the BamHI and PstI sites of the scaffold attachment region (SAR)-containing plasmid p8. The resulting plasmid, pJM7, consisted of two SAR sequences
flanking a short polylinker containing restriction sites for Xhol and PstI. The mutant metallothionein (MT) promoter was amplified by PCR and cloned into pCEP4, linearized
with BglII and NotI, yielding pCEP-MT. A SalI-BamHI
fragment containing an intron from the globin gene was then
inserted into the XhoI and BamHI sites of pCEP-MT, yielding pCEP-MTi. Finally, the MT promoter/intron/poly(A) region was removed from pCEP-MTi by digestion with Sall and cloned into the XhoI site of pJM7, yielding pSAR-MT.
