Resource Information

  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    pEYFP–C1 Venus and pECFP–C1 Cerulean plasmids were generous gifts from David W. Piston. Cerulean gene was sub-cloned from pECFP-C1 and EcoRI and ApaI restriction enzyme sites were introduced into 5 prime and 3 prime of Cerulean DNA fragment. This DNA fragment was inserted into multiple cloning site of pEYFP-C1 Venus by EcoRI and ApaI digestion then ligation. The resulting vector has Venus followed closely by Cerulean and between them there are two restriction enzyme sites BglII and EcoRI which then were employed to insert the alpha-helix linker. The alpha-helix linker DNA was amplified by PCR and BglII and EcoRI sites were introduced into 5 prime and 3 prime ends. The final construct with alpha-helix connecting Venus and Cerulean was named stFRET and ready for eukaryotic expression.
