|Further information:||The plasmid was constructed as follows: the mBID coding sequence was amplified by PCR and inserted as a 596 bp NcoI-SalI fragment into the NcoI-SalI opened pAS2.1 vector. As a result, the mBID 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 pAS2mBID, pAS2.1mBID 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-mBID fusion protein can be used as a bait protein in two-hybrid screening.
pAS2.1mBID carries the S. cerevisiae tryptophan 1 coding sequence 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 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 mBID cDNA corresponds with the Genbank accession number NM_007544.2 and adapted to the sequence analysis results of the Department of Biomedical Molecular Biology (Ghent University, Belgium). The following difference is observable: the nucleotide G at position 6023 is substituted by an A-residue, resulting in a Glu/Lys replacement for amino acid 14.
Other name of the plasmid is pAS2.1 mBid.
