Cloned DNA: Baculovirus protein p35 cDNA
Promoter: Phage λ major leftward promoter (λ PL)
Phage T7 gene 10 promoter (T7g10)
binding site:
Ribosome binding site (RBS) of the phage T7 gene 10 (T7g10)
Terminator: Phage fd terminator
Phage T7 gene 10 terminator (T7g10)
Selection marker: Ampicillin (amp)
Replicon: Escherichia coli plasmid pMB1 origin
Phage f1 origin
Host range: Escherichia coli; use strains with a cI function, cIts for PL controlled expression
Parental clone: pLT10hIL2TH
Further information: This phasmid was constructed as follows: a PCR product containing the complete coding sequence of baculovirus p35 cDNA was inserted as (filled-in) EcoRI/BamHI fragment into the EheI site downstream from the H6EK tag of pLT10hIL2TH.
The H6EK linker is composed of a hexameric histidine-encoding fragment (allowing the synthesis of affinity-tagged fusion proteins) followed by the enterokinase recognition site (allowing the precise release of the mature heterologous gene). This H6EK linker directly follows the ATG start codon. Mature human IL2 CDS (except its first codon) is still present, due to the construction strategy.
The phasmid can be used to make in vitro translated baculovirus p35.
Transcriptional read-through from the promoters is minimized by the presence of a duplicated T7 transcription terminator and a duplicated fd transcription terminator. Read-through transcription from other plasmid promoters is minimized by the clockwise orientation of the PL and T7 promoters relative to the anticlockwise orientation of the replication origin.
Furthermore, the phasmid is provided with an antisense phage T3 promoter. It also contains the replication origin of the single-stranded DNA phage f1, so that it can be rapidly switched between the plasmid and the phage mode (ssDNA) of replication. The latter requires infection with a helper phage, e.g. M13KO7.
For T7 driven expression use a strain containing a controllable T7 RNA polymerase gene, as well as a cI function: preferably a pT7POL plasmid (Mertens et al., Biotechnology 13 (1995), 175-179) or e.g. BL21(DE3)[pcI857]. Proceed as follows: first transform auxiliary plasmid, make competent cells again and then transform the expression plasmid.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727287.1.
Other name of the plasmid is pLT10T3HISp35.
