Depositor Comments

For polycistronic mir-206-1/mir-133b, we were not able to identify the transcriptional start precisely by 5′-RACE due to the repetitive sequence in this region. Analyses of EST clones (BM259633, CF999541, CF348604, DR729161) mapped the approximate start of the mir-206-1/mir-133b primary transcript to 1.4 kb from the mir-206 hairpin. A 4.5-kb upstream fragment that includes ∼0.9 kb of the primary transcript was amplified from genomic DNA using primers 3 and 4 (5'-CTGCCCCATTTAGACTCTTTCTTGACG-3' and 5'-CCAGAAGAACCCAGACGAAACCCAC-3'). The promoter fragment was fused to a GFP reporter gene. The miRNA promoter fusion was flanked by I-SceI meganuclease recognition sites to increase the efficiency of transgenensis.

Please note that Addgene's sequencing results show some differences from the published sequence. The depositing lab is aware of the differences.
