mCherry + BGH
mCherry red fluorescent protein (RFP) codon-optimized for expression in human/mammalian cells with a bovine growth hormone (BGH) terminator attached.
This is an improvement of Part BBa_J176005.
Usage and Biology
This mCherry protein is derived from mushroom coral, Discoma sp. (Shaner et al. 2004). The BGH polyadenylation signal is one of the most common terminator sequences used for trasngenic protein expression in eukaryotic cells (Petitclerc et al. 1995)
A BmtI restriction site (sequence GCTAGC) was added to the 3' end of the BGH terminator so that this can be used as a reporter gene within our Multiple-Cloning Site flanked by FRT sites Part BBa_K2605002 system.
