    For the construction of the KLF5 plasmid pcDNA3-HA-KLF5-His, in which an HA tag was added to the N-terminus and a histidine tag was added to the C-terminus of KLF5, we first made the pcDNA3-HA-His vector by inserting a fragment of DNA containing an HA tag, EcoRI, XhoI, HindIII, BamHI, NotI, PstI and XbaI cloning sites and a histidine tag into the pcDNA3.1 vector (Invitrogen) between restriction enzyme sites NcoI and ApaI. The KLF5 cDNA was then cloned into this pcDNA3-HA-His vector between the HA and histidine tags at EcoRI and NotI sites using a PCR-based approach with the following primers (restriction enzyme sites are underlined): 5′-TTTGAATTCATGGCTACAAGGGTGC-3′ (forward) and 5′-TTTGCGGCCGCGTTCTGGTGCCTCTTCATA-3′ (reverse).
