Depositor Comments

The 258/-2.5 core enhancer/promoter fragment can be removed by digestion with SalI or NotI and XhoI. The resulting fragment is approximately 3kb.

All tk sequences were removed from the CAT vector in the construction of 258/-2.5CAT.

Between the enhancer and promoter is a portion of the pBluescript polylinker tha t includes BamHI, SpeI and SmaI sites, none of which are unique.

258 refers to the core enhancer, which is present in this construct, upstream of the 2.5 kb MyoD promoter
