Further information: The plasmid was constructed by ligating the three following fragments: 1) the 5686 bp SalI-SacI fragment from pAS2; 2) the 2721 bp SacI-BamHI fragment from pAS2 and 3) a 1751 bp BamHI-XhoI PCR fragment, containing the human optineurin (hOPTN, hFIP2) coding sequence. As a result, the hFIP2 coding sequence is fused in phase to the N-terminal HA epitope and the S. cerevisiae GALbd domain.
The S. cerevisiae GALbd is composed of the first 147 codons from GAL4, containing the nuclear localization signal.
The GALbd-HA-hFIP2 fusion protein can be used as a bait protein in two-hybrid screening.
pAS2-hFIP2 carries the S. cerevisiae tryptophan 1 coding sequence (TRP1) and the CYH2 sequence encoding ribosomal protein L29 for dominant cycloheximide sensitivity which facilitates the elimination of false positives.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727096.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the pAS2 vector corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number U30496.1, but adapted as follows: 1) the 'N' nucleotide was removed, restoring the coding sequence of cycloheximide; 2) the sequence GATTTC between GALbd and the HA epitope was replaced by GAATTC, an EcoRI site that has been experimentally confirmed in pAS2; 3) the sequence TTCGAA (Csp45I site) in the ADH1 promoter was replaced by TCGAAG, eliminating the Csp45I site that could not be experimentally confirmed in pAS2.
The nucleotide sequence of the hFIP2 cDNA was obtained from Genbank (Accession number NM_001008213.1) but contains a silent mutation at codon 34.
