Virology 238, 432-443. Increasing the ratio of PP2A core enzyme to holoenzyme inhibits Tat-stimulated HIV-1 transcription and virus production. 1997

Ruediger, R., Brewis, N., Ohst, K. and Walter, G.

Notes: This paper describes a method for quantitation of luciferase mRNA by in vitro translation using Promega TNT® Coupled Wheat Germ Extract System. (Rabbit reticulocyte lysate could not be used because of luciferase quenching problems). In this reporter gene assay, COS cells were transfected with a firefly luciferase reporter plasmid driven by promoters/enhancers of varying strengths and total cellular RNA was isolated and translated in vitro using the TNT® System. To normalize expression, a CMV Renilla luciferase or beta-galactosidase vector was used as a control. To measure luciferase activity either Promega Luciferase Assay System or Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay System was used. (2047)

J. Biol. Chem. 272, 23489-23497. Transcriptional regulation of the mouse presenilin-1 gene. 1997

Mitsuda, N., Roses, A.D. and Vitek, M.P.

Notes: The Dual-Luciferase™ Reporter System was used to quantitate the presenilin promoter activity in Neuro2a neuroblastoma cells, mouse P19 embryonal carcinoma cells and NIH 3T3 cells. Studies were also performed in P19 cells treated with retinoic acid to acquire a neuron-like phenotype and P19 cells treated with dimethyl sulfoxide to acquire a muscle-like phenotype. The presenilin promoter functioned best in the Neuro2a and neuron-like P19 cells. 5´-RACE products from mouse brain RNA were purified with the Wizard® PCR Preps System and cloned into the pGEM-T Vector . The cloned amplimers were sequenced and used as a template for amplification to produce truncation mutants to assess promoter activity. (1590)
