Depositor Comments

SV40 polyA in pTRE-Tight does not work in TG animal for some reason, additional intron + polyA from pMSG vector was inserted (please see vector map).

To make plasmid, intron+polyA part from pMSG was PCR amplified and ligated to the HindIII/XbaI sites of pTRE-Tight (3’ primer has AatII site also for linearization later). ArchT-GFP was subcloned into pTRE-Tight with BamHI/ClaI.

Linearize the vector with AatII digestion to make transgenic mouse
