Further information: The plasmid was constructed as follows: 1) The mitochondrial anchor sequence (MAS) from IppNT/ActaNt-Mito/pUHD (a gift from Dr M. Petit, Centrum voor Menselijke Erfelijkheid, KULeuven, Belgium and from Dr E. Friederich, Institut Curie, Paris, France) was amplified with appropriate primers. 2) The PCR product and the vector pDEST-Myc were digested with XhoI, blunted, digested with XbaI and ligated together.
pDEST-MycMAS is a Gateway destination vector, containing the lethal B gene of the control of cell death locus of the Escherichia coli F plasmid (ccdB) flanked by the bacteriophage λ attR recombination sites.
pDEST-MycMAS is designed for fusing a gene of interest to the 6 N-terminal Myc epitopes and to the C-terminal mitochondrial anchor sequence (MAS) according to the Gateway Cloning Technology (Invitrogen) and for high-level, constitutive, native expression of this gene in a wide variety of mammalian and avian cells under control of the strong simian cytomegalovirus immediate early promoter (CMV-IE) and enhancer.
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.
This Gateway destination vector is compatible with the human orfeome library which is also available at BCCM/GeneCorner.
Other name of the plasmid is pdCS2-MT-MAS.
