Depositor Comments

The multiple cloning region of the pcDNA3 vector has been modified. In the modified vector, referred to as pcDNA3/Myc, the region of the multiple cloning site located between the HindIII and NotI sites was replaced by a DNA segment containing a Kozak consensus sequence, an ATG start site and the Myc epitope sequence followed by EcoRI restriction site (see supplemental document). The construction of pcDNA3/Myc has been described in Chen, Z.X., et al. J Cell Biochem, 95: 902-917.

The full-length cDNA for human DNMT1 was cloned into EcoRI and NotI sites of pcDNA3/Myc. Constructed by Zhaoxia Chen.
