Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: the mBID coding sequence with C-terminal deletion of helix 6, 7 and 8 (mBIDΔC, encoding amino acids 1-144) was amplified by PCR on pAS2mBID and inserted as a 443 bp NcoI-SalI fragment into the NcoI-SalI opened pAS2 vector. As a result, the mBIDΔC 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-mBIDΔC fusion protein can be used as a bait protein in two-hybrid screening.
pAS2mBIDdeltaC 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 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 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 6050 is substituted by an A- residue, resulting in a Glu/Lys replacement for amino acid 14.
Other name of the plasmid is pAS2 mBid C-term del.
