Parental clone: pCD-F-MALT-p20
Further information: The plasmid was created by cloning the C. elegans PCASP coding sequence amplified from the C. elegans strain N2 (gift from Vanfleteren lab, UGent) as a KpnI/ApaI fragment into the pCD-F-MALT-p20 vector, replacing the human MALT1 p20 fragment.
Vertebrates typically contain 3 paracaspase paralogs, but all but 1 (PCASP1, MALT1) have been lost in mammals. A direct relative to the ancestral PCASP3 can be found as far back as sea urchins. Among other invertebrates, there are many different lineages of paracaspases. Advanced invertebrates have the "modern" (MALT1-like) DD-Ig1-Ig2-PCASP-Ig3 domain architecture of type 1 paracaspases, whereas primitive invertebrates (sponges, trichoplax,...) have a PCASP-only type protein, classing them as type 2 paracaspases.
The parental clone of this vector has been shown to provide resistance to kanamycin, although growth was reduced compared to growth on medium containing ampicillin.
The nucleotide sequence of the C. elegans PCASP cDNA corresponds with the Genbank accession number NM_063023.6.
Other name of the plasmid is pCD-F-CeMALT1.
