Further information: The plasmid was constructed by inserting a 416 bp NcoI-SalI fragment, containing the human tBID coding sequence, obtained by RT-PCR using HeLa cDNA as template, into the NcoI-SalI opened pAS2.1 vector. As a result, the human tBID coding sequence is fused in phase to the N-terminal S. cerevisiae GALbd domain.
pAS2.1 was derived from pAS2 by removing the Influenza HA epitope, encoding the haemagglutinin tagging peptide. Therefore, unlike pAS2htBID, pAS2.1htBID transformants lack aspecific β-galactosidase activity.
The S. cerevisiae GALbd is composed of the first 147 codons from GAL4, containing the nuclear localization signal.
The GALbd-htBID fusion protein can be used as a bait protein in two-hybrid screening.
pAS2.1htBID 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.
When cloning a fragment downstream from the lac promoter it may be advisable to use lacI(q) strains in order to prevent fortuitous expression of a possibly noxious polypeptide.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727032.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the pAS2.1 vector corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number U30497.1, corresponding to the Clontech website (version 05/01/1996).
The nucleotide sequence of the human BID cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number AF042083 .1.
Other name of the plasmid is pAS2.1 htBid.
