General description

pRc and pRSV Supercoiled Expression Vectors (5.2 kb) are for protein expression in mammalian cells. Each vector contains:
  • The polyadenylation signal and transcription termination sequence from BGH to enhance mRNA stability
  • The SV40 replication origin for episomal replication
  • The f1 origin for rescue of the sense strand
  • The neomycin resistance gene, and
  • An ampicillin resistance gene and colE1 origin for selection and maintenance in E. coli.


The primary difference between these expression vectors is that pRc contains the enhancer-promoter sequence from human cytomegalovirus (CMV2) and pRSV from Rous sarcoma virus (RSV). Both are strong promoters for high-level transcription.

The pRc MCS contains unique ApaI, HindIII, NotI, and XbaI restriction sites, plus redundant BstXI sites.

The pRSV MCS contains unique HindIII, NotI, SpeI, and XbaI restriction sites, plus redundant BstXI sites.

Specificity

The MCS contains unique ApaI (CMV2 only), HindIII, NotI, SpeI (RSV only), and XbaI restriction sites, plus redundant BstXI sites.

Features and Benefits

Supercoiled vectors for protein expression in mammalian cells. Both of these vectors contain:
  • the polyadenylation signal and transcription termination sequence from BGH to enhance mRNA stability
  • the SV40 replication origin for episomal replication
  • the f1 origin for rescue of the sense strand
  • the neomycin resistance gene, and
  • an ampicillin resistance gene and colE1 origin for selection and maintenance in E. coli.
The primary difference between these expression vectors is that one contains the enhancer-promoter sequence from human cytomegalovirus (CMV2) and the other from Rous sarcoma virus (RSV). Both are strong promoters for high-level transcription.

Lot and Batch Numbers can be found on a product's label following the words 'Lot' or 'Batch'.

Aldrich Products

  • For a lot number such as TO09019TO, enter it as 09019TO (without the first two letters 'TO').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as 05427ES-021, enter it as 05427ES (without the filling-code '-021').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as STBB0728K9, enter it as STBB0728 without the filling-code 'K9'.

Not Finding What You Are Looking For?
