Does the BGH poly A region in your vectors have a splice donor and splice acceptor (and therefore an intron)? What is the general function of the BGH polyA region?

Product FAQ

Answer

There is no intron in the BGH polyA sequence. The BGH polyA signal (bases 1028-1252 in pcDNA™3.1 vector) is the sequence that allows for polyadenylation of the RNA transcript. It is described in the following reference: The 3’-flanking sequence of the bovine growth hormone gene contains novel elements required for efficient and accurate polyadenylation. J Biol Chem.1992 Aug 15;267(23):16330-4

The reference states that the 3’ untranslated region leading up to the poly adenylation core sequence (AATAAA) contains unique disperse non-consensus elements (consensus elements are poly U and GU-rich tracts) that serve to increase the efficiency of polyadenylation to a high degree, and that a 9-base sequence downstream of the core sequence facilitates efficient cleavage of the RNA strand. This leads to more stable and higher-abundance transcripts.

Do any of the your mammalian expression vectors contain an SV40 intron?

Product FAQ

Answer

We used to sell pcDNA™1 vector and related vectors which contained the SV40 intron and polyA signal fragment downstream of the multiple cloning site. However, the SV40 intron shows "promiscuity", which means that in vectors containing the SV40 intron downstream of an expressed gene, the 3’ end of the SV40 intron tends to splice with sequences within genes cloned upstream of the intron that are near-consensus 5’ splice sites (consensus sequence is MAGGTRAGT), leading to aberrant splice products. In other words, the 3’ end of the intron would often combine and splice out part of the gene of interest (1).

Our expression vectors now use the Bovine Growth Hormone polyadenylation sequence as the polyadenylation sequence for cloned genes of interest, because it is extremely efficient (2). However, the SV40 polyA signal is still included in many of our vectors as a polyadenylation signal for the expressed eukaryotic selection marker (e.g. neomycin, hygromycin, or zeocin resistance genes). There is no intron accompanying the polyA in these vectors.
