Depositor Comments

Synthetic oligonucleotides containing two CAGC sites, GGCGCC palindrome and MluI 5′-overhang (on the sense strand) and two SBE sites, one GGCG site and NheI 5′-overhang (on the antisense strand) were ligated and inserted into NheI sites in pGL3-MLP-luc minimal promoter vector. Thus the construct was created with a 5′ site for NheI site followed by 2 SBEs, 1 GGCG site, 2 CAGC′ sites, 2 GGCGCC palindromes, 2 CAGC′ sites, 1 GGCG site, 2 SBEs, and an NheI 3′ site.

Based on the above description and the associated publication, the deduced sequence of the full hairpin is:

The presence of the hairpin can make sequencing this region difficult by traditional Sanger Sequencing. Protocols for "difficult templates" or "GC rich" may help.
