pTurboRFP-PRL is a promoterless vector encoding red (orange) fluorescent protein TurboRFP, which can be used as in vivo reporter of promoter activity (see reporter description). TurboRFP codon usage is optimized for high expression in mammalian cells (humanized) [Haas et al., 1996]. To increase mRNA translation efficiency, Kozak consensus translation initiation site is generated upstream of the TurboRFP coding sequence [Kozak, 1987].
Multiple cloning site (MCS) is located upstream of the Kozak consensus translation initiation site and can be used to clone a promoter or a promoter/enchancer combination of interest. Without the addition of a functional promoter, this vector will not express TurboRFP.
The vector backbone contains SV40 origin for replication in mammalian cells expressing SV40 T-antigen, pUC origin of replication for propagation in
SV40 early promoter (PSV40) provides neomycin resistance gene (Neor) expression to select stably transfected eukaryotic cells using G418. Bacterial promoter (P) provides kanamycin resistance gene expression (Kanr) in
