|Further information:||The plasmid was obtained by PCR mutagenesis on pAS2mproCASP8-WT, replacing 3 aspartic acid residues between the p10, P20 and prodomain subunits of CASP8 by asparagin amino acids. These mutations prevent the caspase from activating itself.
pAS2 is a yeast two-hybrid vector, expressing the cloned mproCASP8 cds as a fusion protein with GAL4DBD.
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.
