  • The backbone of the pGL2 Luciferase Reporter Vectors was redesigned for the pGL3 Vectors
  • pGL3 Vectors provide a basis for rapid, sensitive, and quantitative analysis of factors that potentially regulate mammalian gene expression
  • Nco I site located at 5« end of the luc+ gene allows creation of fusions with the reporter gene using a unique Nco I site
  • Placement of a Sma I site in the multiple cloning site (MCS) allows blunt-ended inserts to be ligated into the MCS and restricted on either side by other restriction endonucleases
  • Creation of an Xba I site just downstream of the luc+ gene facilitates insertions into the 3« untranslated region of mRNA or subcloning of the luciferase gene

The specific transcriptional characteristics of the pGL3 Vectors will vary for different cell types, particularly COS cells
