Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: 1) The Trypanosoma cruzi trans-sialidase coding sequence (TS) was isolated as a StuI/MscI fragment from pCAGGS-TS and ligated into the SmaI opened pMa58 vector, resulting in the intermediate construct pMa58TSvoll; 2) A unique StuI site was introduced in front of the termination codon of the mature TS gene by site-specific mutagenesis using the synthetic linker 5'-CCCCTGATCAGGCCTTCGTGTCGCTGCTGC-3'; 3) Finally, the mature TS gene was isolated as a BssHII (filled in with Klenow DNA polymerase)/StuI fragment and ligated into the XhoI/MunI (filled in with Klenow DNA polymerase) opened pCAhIFNGSTmE vector, leading to pCAGGS-TSE.
pCAGGS-TSE is useful for highly efficient expression of trans-sialidase, C-terminally fused to an E-tag, under the control of the chicken β-actin/rabbit β-globin hybrid promoter (AG) and the human CMV-IE enhancer in various mammalian cells.
The AG promoter sequence consists of the chicken β-actin promoter, the first exon and part of the first intron (that seems to have a strong enhancer-like activity) linked to a rabbit β-globin fragment, consisting of a 3' part of the second intron (inclusive a branch point which is required for normal splicing reactions) and a 5' part of the third exon.
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.
Other name of the plasmid is pCAGGS-TSjE.
