Psi-check2 reporter vector containing native or mutant MSTN 3-UTR. Vector contains Renilla luciferase reporter gene, hRluc, which is used to monitor changes in expression of 3-UTR as the result of miRNA binding. The firefly luciferase reporter gene, hluc, is used to correct luciferase signal for transfection efficiency. The 1500-bp MSTN 3-UTR sequence containing miR-27b consensus sequence (wilde type or mutated) was inserted into the vector at the 3 end of the hRluc reporter gene. (TIFF 28 kb)
