Depositor Comments

A UPF1 sequence-verified cDNA clone was ordered from Dharmacon (clone ID 5555509). The UPF1 cDNA was then amplified and cloned into the Dox-inducible lentiviral vector pCW57.1 (Addgene #41393) using the Gibson Assembly Cloning Kit (NEB). Due to high GC content within the first 500 bp of UPF1 cDNA, several attempts to introduce an N-terminal FLAG-tag via PCR primer overhangs failed. The FLAG-tag sequence was therefore introduced after the ATG start codon by replacing the first 381 bp of the UPF1 coding sequence with an in-frame, codon-optimized (lower GC content) gBlock DNA fragment containing the FLAG-tag (IDT).
