Further information: The plasmid was constructed by cloning the Gateway reading frame cassette B (rfB, from Invitrogen) between the blunted EcoRI and BamHI sites of pGADT7 (Clontech).
pDEST-GADT7 is a Gateway destination vector, containing the ccdB gene of the E. coli F plasmid, flanked by the bacteriophage λ attR recombination sites.
pDEST-GADT7 is designed for fusing a gene of interest to the N-terminal S. cerevisiae GALad domain and HA epitope according to the Gateway Cloning Technology (Invitrogen) and for high-level, constitutive, native expression of this gene in yeast cells under control of the S. cerevisiae ADH1 promoter.
The GALad sequence is composed of the initiation codon, the 2nd and 3rd codon from the SV40 large T-antigen, the nuclear localization signal from the SV40 large T-antigen and the activation domain (codons 768-881) from S. cerevisiae GAL4.
A Gateway entry clone, containing the gene of interest flanked by the λ attL recombination sites, recombines with the attR sites of the destination vector, replacing the ccdB gene. Standard E. coli strains with the unreacted destination vector or with the by-product plasmid retaining the ccdB gene will fail to grow. Thus, this negative selection provides high-efficiency recovery of only the desired clones. The chloramphenicol resistance gene located between the two attR sites permits counterselection.
pDEST-GADT7 replicates autonomously in both E. coli and S. cerevisiae from the pMB1 and 2μ ori respectively.
The vector carries the ampicillin resistance gene for selection in E. coli and the LEU2 nutritional marker for selection in yeast.
The pGADT7 part of the plasmid sequence file, which was provided by the depositor, corresponds with the pGADT7 sequence on the Clontech website (; 9/12/2011), except for the following nucleotides in the pDEST-GADT7 sequence: 1) an extra A in position 1144; 2) A instead of G in position 5298; 3) G instead of T in position 5348, 4) an extra G in position 5950; 5) G instead of A in position 6945; furthermore, an extra G is present in position 4220 of pGADT7.
This Gateway destination vector is compatible with the human orfeome library which is also available at BCCM/GeneCorner.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727257.1.
Other name of the plasmid is pdGADT7.
