The pIG and Signal pIG vectors from R&D Systems Europe should do that
for you. These vectors contain the Fc region of a human IgG designed to
be fused to the 3' end of an inserted target gene, and can be used to
produce the recombinant protein in mammalian cell culture from a CMV
promoter. The vectors are also presently available from Novagen, Inc.
in the US.
