Further information: pCAGGS-CrmA-T291R is useful for highly efficient expression of mutated crmA under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
As compared to the wt crmA cDNA, the threonine (T) codon at position 291 was replaced by an arginine (R) codon, creating a unique NruI (Bsp68I) site and abolishing a PvuII site.
The crmA pointmutant can no longer inhibit caspase activity and consequently apoptosis.
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 LT727106.1.
The nucleotide sequence of the crmA cDNA corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number M14217.1.
