Depositor Comments

The plasmid 3X-KB-L has a minimal fos promoter element and three copies of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I KB element TGGGGATTCCCCA. It was constructed by ligation of the fragment obtained through digestion of MHC-NF-KB CAT by HindIII, blunting with Klenow DNA polymerase, and then digestion with BamHI. The fragment was ligated to pGL2-Basic digest(SmaI+BglII).
