This plasmid is compatible with all of the other DNA sequences available on this site, which are all sold in the same backbone. This flexibility allows you to create any vector you require, with a variety of functions, simply by compiling the relevant sections from our product range.

Vector: pSF-MinProm-FLuc

Product Code: OG357

Quantity Provided: 5µg

Size (bp): 5503

Bacterial Antibiotic Selection: Kanamycin

Origin and Compatibility: pUC high copy, derived from pBR322   

Copy Number: 500-700 copies per cell

Promoter: Minimal promoter from the Herpes Simplex Thymidine Kinase Gene

Purpose: This plasmid contains a multiple cloning site that is upstream of a minimal promoter that is upstream of the Photinus pyralis (FLuc) luciferase reporter gene. This plasmid can be used to insert specific DNA sequences that will endow the minimal promoter with specific biochemical properties such as tissue  specificity, or transcription factor, specific activation.   

Poly A signals: Unlike pSF-pA-MinProm-FLuc, this plasmid does not have a synthetic poly adenylation site immediately  upstream of the minimal promoter to reduce background transcription. This is useful when transferring the promoter into retroviral vectors because the presence of a polyA can prevent full length virus genome  production.

Quality Sequencing Analysis: This vector has been fully sequenced using primers F1-F10. The sequences and details of these primers are available through our website.

Genetic Modifications to standard parts:

  • KanR cassette – This KanR resistance region is not a wild type sequence, it has been modified to remove all restriction sites that conflict with the SnapFast system and to retain a high level of antibiotic resistance. It has been validated in E.coli.
  • Photinus pyralis luciferase - The luciferase gene in this vector has been modified to remove three BsgI sites, two BseRI sites, one PspOMI site, one MreI site and one BbvCI site to ensure compatibility with all of our products.

Restriction site notes:

  • Bgl2, SwaI and PmeI each cut the vector at two sites positioned to flank the promoter region, origin, and KanR, respectively.
  • BsgI and BseRI recognise non-palindromic DNA sequences and cleave upstream of their recognition sites, within the stop codon that is found inside the XbaI restriction site.
