  • Human ALR gene sequence was amplified by PCR from human total DNA and inserted into pIRES2-EGFP vector. The bicistronic eukaryotic expression vector, pIRES-EGFP/ALR, expressing EGFP, Neor and ALR genes was constructed. Sheep fetal fibroblast cells (sEFCs) were transfected with pIRES-EGFP/ALR by the induction of lipofectAMINETM. The positive cell clones were selected with medium containing G418 (800 µg/ml). The fluorescence of transgenic cells was examined with a confocal laser scanning microscope. The expression of ALR gene was tested by PCR, RT-PCR and immuno-histochemical staining. The transgenic cells were used as donors for nuclear transfer to enucleated ovine oocytes. Transgenic embryos were tested by confocal laser scanning microscope and immuno -histochemical staining. Results showed that the EGFP and ALR genes linked with IRES were coexpressed simultaneously in sFFCs; the blastocysts formed by nuclear transfer using tranfected donor cells are all transgenic blastocysts. EGFP, ALR and Neor gene were all expressed in the transgenic embryos. In conclusion that a method to construct the positive embryos before pre-implantation which stably express ALR gene by the indication of EGFP expression has been successfully established. The application of this method can simplify the procedure of testing the targets and contribute to the efficiency increasing of transgenic domestic animal production.
