Depositor Comments

pBPGUw is a modular Gateway compatible GAL4 vector amenable to high throughput in vitro cloning using Invitrogen LR clonase and specific in vivo genomic targeting using PhiC31 integrase. pBPGUw contains a Drosophila synthetic core promoter (DSCP) that contains TATA, Inr, MTE, and DPE motifs. In addition the GAL4 CDS and yeast transcriptional terminator can easily be substituted for another driver by a directional 5' KpnI to 3' HindIII digest.
