Resource Information

Depositor Comments

To create MSCV/IRES/LUC, the MSCV/IRES/GFP plasmid was amplified up and digested with NcoI and SalI to remove the GFP. Next, the pGL3-Promoter vector from Promega was amplified up and digested with NcoI and SalI to remove luciferase and the Poly(A) signal. Once completed, the 1.7kb luciferase was ligated into MSCV/IRES to give the MSCV/IRES/LUC plasmid.
