  • Modifications to backbone
    A 1.1 kb portion of the rat NSE gene was PCR amplified using a forward primer containing AseI and AflII and a reverse primer containing BglII and PvuI sites. Primer sequences are as follows: GGGATTAATCTTAAGGGGACAGTAAAGGTGATGGC, 3’GGGAGATCTCGATCGGAGGACTGCAGACTCAGCC. The PCR product was digested with AseI and BglII and cloned into the AseI and BamHI cut pmRFP-N1 in place of the CMV promoter. The mRFP was removed from this plasmid with PvuI and XbaI and replaced with the PmeI-excised multi-cloning site of pcDNA3.1. The resulting NSE promoter/multicloning site/polyadenylation signal sequence cassette was excised by AflI partial digestion, the DNA fragment agarose gel purified, and then ligated (blunt end) into pShuttle cut with KpnI and SalI.
