    The pTK-GLuc Vector is a mammalian expression vector that encodes the secreted luciferase from the copepod Gaussia princeps as a reporter, under the control of the constitutive Herpes Simplex Virus thymidine kinase promoter. Gaussia Luciferase (GLuc) is a 20 kDa protein encoded by a "humanized" sequence, and it contains a native signal peptide at the N-terminus that allows it to be secreted from mammalian cells into the cell culture medium (1,2). pTK-GLuc has a multiple cloning site (MCS) between the GLuc stop codon and the polyadenylation site. A neomycin resistance gene under the control of an SV40 promoter allows selection for stable integration of the plasmid into the mammalian cell genome using G418.

    The Gaussia Luciferase sequence is shown with a blue background. Only unique restriction sites are shown.

    DNASU and Addgene are central repositories for plasmid clones and collections that may also be helpful.
