Depositor Comments

Prostate. 2013 February 15; 73(3): 267–277. doi:10.1002/pros.22566. The activity of the androgen receptor variant AR-V7 is regulated
by FOXO1 in a PTEN-PI3K-AKT-dependent way.

Cloning is described in the supplemental materials (excerpted below).

Cloning Strategy
The carboxy-terminal part of AR-V7 and AR-V1 were PCR amplified by using the following primers: sense (common for AR-V1 and AR-V7 amplification) 5’-GCGCAAGCTTCTGGGTGTCACTATGGAGC (harboring a Hind III site), antisense for AR-V7 GCTCTAGATCAGGGTCTGGTCATTTTGAGATGC (harboring a XbaI site), antisense for AR-V1 GCTCTAGATTAAGGAAGCCATTCTGAGACTCC (also harboring a XbaI site). CMV-AR-V7 and CMV-AR-V1 were generated by replacing a HindIII-XbaI cDNA fragment encoding the carboxy-terminal portion of wild-type AR (subcloned into a pcDNA3 plasmid) with the AR-V7 or AR-V1 fragments generated by PCR. GFP-AR-V7 and GFP-AR-V1 were generated by replacing an XmaI-XbaI cDNA fragment encoding the carboxy-terminal part of wild-type AR, subcloned in frame to the green fluorescent protein of plasmid pEGFP-c1, with XmaI-XbaI fragments from the pcDNA3 plasmids containing the AR-V7 and AR-V1 variants.
