  • Mutation
    This construct was the product of 3 subcloning procedures: 1. XbaI-EcoRI-p65-EcoRI-KpnI from pBluescript II SK +/- was digested with XbaI/KpnI, and subcloned to M13 mp19. 2. HindIII-XbaI-p65-HindIII-KpnI from the M13 mp19 construct was digested with HindIII, then subcloned into pCMV4. 3. The resulting pCMV4 p65 plasmid can be liberated using HindIII, with a size of ~2.5 kb. The large size (p65 is only 1.5kb) is due to the inclusion of multiple polylinkers from pBluescript and M13mp19 as well as non-coding regions of p65.
