Depositor Comments

This plasmid is an empty vector. Your gene can be inserted with a LIC cloning protocol. All 2-series vectors work as single-expression vectors, as well as transfer vectors for our polycistronic system.

The LIC cloning site is flanked by 5 pairs of restriction sites, so that your gene can easily be subcloned into our polycistronic destination vectors (2D, 2E, or 2Z).

2U-T adds a short polypeptide sequence to the N-terminus of your protein of interest. This may be useful when the native mRNA forms hairpin loops, causing low or no expression.

To clone into this vector, add LIC v1 tags to the 5' end of your PCR primers.

Forward - 5'TACTTCCAATCCAATGCA3'

Reverse - 5'TTATCCACTTCCAATGTTATTA3'

Linearize the plasmid with SspI and gel purify.

When digesting the DNA with T4 polymerase, use dCTP for insert and dGTP for vector.

The vector is supposed to be cut with SspI (AATATT), which is a blunt cutter that cuts between the N and the "I" (this ends up not being transcribed, however). Then, provided you use the LIC tags on your PCR primers that we've suggested, the forward primer will introduce an A residue immediately downstream of the N. The final tag, therefore, is MYFQSNA.
