The vector sequence has been compiled using the information from sequence databases, published literature, and other sources, together with partial sequences obtained by Evrogen. This vector has not been completely sequenced.
pHyPer-cyto is a mammalian expression vector encoding a fluorescent sensor HyPer (see reporter description). To increase mRNA translation efficiency, Kozak consensus translation initiation site is generated upstream of the HyPer coding sequence [Kozak, 1987].
The vector can be also used as a source of HyPer coding sequence. Flanking restriction sites are convenient for excision of HyPer sequence and its further insertion into other expression vectors of choice. Alternatively, HyPer coding sequence can be amplified by PCR.
Note: The plasmid DNA was isolated from dam+-methylated
The vector backbone contains immediate early promoter of cytomegalovirus (PCMV IE) for protein expression, 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
Expression in mammalian cells
pHyPer-cyto vector can be transfected into mammalian cells by any known transfection method. CMV promoter provides strong, constitutive HyPer expression in eukaryotic cells. If required, stable transformants can be selected using G418 [Gorman, 1985].
