Golden Gate Assembly of BD002 to Replace HsvtkTATA with CMV and HPK Promoters

Desired Constructs:

BD003: 5XGAL4-Spacer-CMV-Kozak-AMCyan-AmCyan-NLS-Stop

BD004: 5XGAL4-Spacer-HPK-Kozak-AMCyan-AmCyan-NLS-Stop

Existing construct is: 5XGAL4-Spacer-HsvTK-Kozak-AMCyan-AmCyan-NLS-Stop in V0200 mammalian vector

Amplification of CMV and HPK from KAH187 and KAH184 respectively.

The backbone vector has BSMBI cut site within the hygromycine resistance gene. I was removed though Site Directed Mutagenesis

  • Dilute the purified PCR product to 20 fmol/μL
    • Measure ng/μL of the purified sample.
    • The volume of purified DNA (x) you will need to dilute in a final volume of 20 μL = length in bp ÷ measured ng/μL * 20 fmols/μL * 650 fg/fmol ÷ 1,000,000 fg/ng * 20 μL final volume
    • Formula: x = length in bp ÷ measured ng/μL * 0.013 * 20

Backbone vector X = (5500 / 170) * 0.013 * 20 = 8.4 + 11.58 = 20μL

HPK X = (2203 / 115) * 0.013 * 20 = 1.16 + 19 = 20μL

CMV X = (2275 / 55) * 0.013 * 20 = 2.78 + 17.2 = 20μL
