Further information: This plasmid was constructed as follows: 1) The intermediate plasmid pPICZfragTS was constructed by inserting a KpnI-XbaI PCR fragment of the pPIC9-TSE vector, containing the 3' fragment of the mature T. cruzi TS gene, into the KpnI-XbaI opened pPICZB vector. 2) The PmeI-KpnI fragment of pPIC9-TSE, containing the ppMF signal sequence of the S. cerevisiae MFα1 gene fused to the 5' fragment of the mature T. cruzi TS gene, was then inserted into the PmeI-KpnI opened pPICZfragTS vector.
This plasmid is useful in P. pastoris strains for secreted expression of trans-sialidase under control of the strong, highly-inducible P. pastoris AOX1 promoter.
At the fusion junction between the ppMF sequence of the S. cerevisiae MFα1 gene and the mature TS gene, a (Glu-Ala)-dipeptide and an additional (but not essential) Tyr-residue are present. During secretion of the protein, the (Glu-Ala)-dipeptide is removed by a dipeptidase.
The zeocin resistance gene is driven by the synthetic prokaryotic EM7 promoter in E. coli and by the S. cerevisiae TEF1α promoter for selection in P. pastoris.
The presence of two P. pastoris AOX1 regions (the AOX1 promoter and the AOX1 terminator) allows integration of the linearized vector into the Pichia genome via homologous recombination at the AOX1 locus.
The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid corresponds with the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database accession number LT727204.1.
