|Further information:||pAIL2 is an expression vector containing the ompA signal sequence fused to the mature mouse IL2 cDNA downstream from the IPTG-inducible tac promoter. The fusion product lacks the 3' terminal alanine residue of the OmpA signal peptide and contains an additional serine residue between the two subunits. The signal peptide cleavage occurs at the serine, resulting in mouse IL2 with an amino-terminal alanine.
As compared to pSIL2 and pNIL2, the ompA-mIL2 fusion conformation results in an intermediate mouse IL2 secretion level.
pAIL2 provides resistance to ampicillin and to chloramphenicol also in sup(-) strains. This has been experimentally verified at LMBP.
pAIL2 contains the replication origin of the single-stranded DNA phage f1, so that it can be rapidly switched between the plasmid and the phage mode (ssDNA) of replication. The latter requires infection with a helper phage, e.g. M13KO7.
The presence of the lacI(q) repressor gene is necessary to control the activity of the tac promoter.
After mutagenesis, use mutS strains for primary transformation (e.g. sup(-) strain WK6mutS, sup(+) strain BMH71-18mutS); for segregation of possible mutants: sup(-) strains (e.g. WK6).
This plasmid was derived from pSIL2 via site-specific mutagenesis. Consequently, the 3' terminal alanine-encoding GCC-triplet of the Escherichia coli ompA signal sequence was removed. The mutation was confirmed by DNA sequence analysis.
Other names of the plasmid are pMa519KSompAmIL2Ala(-) and pOmIL2A.

|Cultivation medium:||LB-Lennox + ampicillin (100 μg/ml) + chloramphenicol (25 μg/ml)*|
|Cultivation remark:||*: selection of transformants on chloramphenicol; subsequent cultivation of a single colony in liquid medium with ampicillin. E. coli RR1ΔM15 is characterized by a suppressor mutation (supE44). As such, this host/plasmid combination also provides resistance to chloramphenicol (mutated chloramphenicol resistance gene present on the plasmid).|
