Cloned DNA: Trypanosoma cruzi trans-sialidase gene (TS); mature sequence
Promoter: Chicken β-actin/rabbit β-globin hybrid promoter (AG)
Human cytomegalovirus immediate early promoter (CMV-IE); enhancer only
Escherichia coli lac operon promoter
binding site:
Terminator: Rabbit β-globin polyadenylation signal (β-globin polyA)
Simian virus 40 polyadenylation signal (SV40 polyA)
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Simian virus 40 bidirectional origin (SV40)
Host range: Escherichia coli
Mammalian cells; SV40 permissive cells
Parental clone: pCAGGS
Further information: The plasmid was constructed by inserting the Pfu amplified PCR fragment of the T. cruzi TS gene into the MscI site of pCAGGS. As a result, a unique MscI and an extra NdeI restriction site were created upstream of the start of the coding TS sequence, and a unique BclI and an extra StuI site were created downstream from the coding TS sequence.
The TS gene does not contain a C-terminal repeat domain.
pCAGGS-TS is useful for highly efficient expression of trans-sialidase under the control of the AG promoter and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
The sequence corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number AJ276679 (version SV 1).
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 LT727318.1.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGS-TSj.
