LINuS-flex was designed to contain a spacer sequence flanked by BsmBI restriction sites between the VP64 transactivation domain and mCherry enabling scarless introduction of any NES sequence by standard oligo cloning.
A second spacer sequence flanked by BsaI restriction sites is located behind the truncated AsLOV2 domain and enables scarless introduction of any NLS sequence by standard oligo cloning.
Unique BamHI and SpeI sites further enable the exchange of the LexA DBD-MBP-VP64 fragment by any sequence of interest.
