Depositor Comments

The lacZ and the human placental alkaline phosphatase (AP) genes in the pZ/AP vector were replaced with EGFP, synthesized by PCR from pEGFP-N1 (Clontech), and RFP, synthesized by PCR from pDsRed2-C1 (Clontech), respectively. One cryptic start codon at the 5'UTR of the original AP gene that was not in frame was eliminated. These modifications produced a conditional vector for miRNA expression, pCAG-EGFP/RFP. A synthetic artificial intron was designed to contain typical intron splicing regulatory elements. This intron was placed 10 nt-downstream of the stop codon of the RFP gene to avoid NMD.
