IRESite record type: negative_control_plasmid_with_promoter_and_without_putative_IRES
The shape of the nucleic acid molecule translated: linear
The quality of the mRNA/+RNA sequence: end-to-end_full-length_mRNA
The mRNA/+RNA description:
A bicistronic mRNA encoding B2 cyclin and NS protein as the first and the second cistron,
respectively. Putative T7 promoter-derived transcript transcribed either in vitro or in vivo in BHK-21 cells
infected by recombinant vaccinia virus vTF7-3 containing pXLJ0S.
The mRNA/+RNA sequence represented in the +DNA notation:
Credibility of mRNA sequence: end-to-end_sequence_completely_same_as_in_the_experiment
The name of the promoter used to express this mRNA: T7
Description of the plasmid (facultative for promoter-less plasmid records): pXLJ0S is derivative of pXLJCon (IRESite ID: 329). The pXLJCon has been cut by Asp718, filled in by
Klenow enzyme and selfligated. This modification let to creation of SnaBI site in intercistronic region.
pXLJ0S contains T7 and SP6 promoter sites and is typically used in in vitro transcription/translation
assays. Bicistronic RNA, which contains B2 and NS cistrons (GI:214094, GI:21693177), is transcribed by T7
polymerase after vector linearization by EcoRI.
The in vivo produced transcripts are heterogeneous (due to any of promoter?/splicing?/cleavage?/breakage?): not tested
The in vivo produced heterogeneous transcripts occur due to alternative splicing: not tested
The DNA sequence of the plasmid in (+) orientation annotated by its secondary structure:
GenBank formatted file with annotated plasmid sequence hyperlinked from vector image map:
A promoter reported in cDNA corresponding to IRES sequence: not tested
The total number of notable open-reading frames (ORFs): 2
Notable Open-Reading Frames (ORFs; protein coding regions) in the mRNA/+RNA sequence:
The description of the protein encoded in this ORF: Truncated form of influenza NS1 protein which is N-terminally fused with 3 amino acids
The translational frameshift (ribosome slippage) involved: 0
The ribosome read-through involved: no
The alternative forms of this protein occur by the alternative initiation of translation: no
The ORF absolute position (the base range includes START and STOP codons or their equivalents): 1411-2091
IRESite notes about verification of plasmid sequence:
The sequence of pXLJ0S was derived from the pXLJCon sequence which has been experimentally determined by
IRESite curators (please see the IRESite entry 329). The sequence of pXLJ0S differs from pXLJCon in a creation
of SnaBI restriction site at position 4202 of plasmid sequence. A mutation in vector backbone at position
2808 is indicated in pXLJOS gb file provided by IRESite. This mutation has been detected by sequencing of
pXLJCon, thus it is not clear if it is present in pXLJ0S as well.
