  • Backbone size (bp) 8507
  • Modifications to backbone
    A 1255 bp region of the mouse cofilin 1 gene in BAC RP-23-457M2 just upstream of the start codon was amplified by PCR using the following primers containing a KpnI site: 5’ TTTCTAGATGGTACCGCTTCGGCCTCCACCTGG, 3’ TCTTCTAGAGGTACCGGGAGACAGAAAGAGCAACTG. KpnI-cut MCP DNA was then ligated into the KpnI site of pShuttle. A 710 bp polyadenylation sequence from the 3’UTR of the mouse cofilin-1 gene was amplified from the BAC template using PCR primers that contained a BglII site using the following primers: 5’ TTCAAGATCTGCCGTCATTTCCCTGGAGG, 3’ TTCAAGATCTGAGCCCAACTGCCCTGCC. This polyadenylation sequence was also cloned into the BglII site of pShuttle to generate pShuttle-MCP.
