Please note- The numbering system used was for the mature natural wild-type PstS protein. The plasmid produces an extra N-terminal methionine so all mutations will be off by 1nt (e.g., A197C =A198C)
The expressed protein is a double-cysteine variant of E. coli phosphate binding protein. The gene encodes the mature protein without the N-terminal signal peptide, but with an N-terminal methionine, for subsequent labeling at the cysteines with two 6-iodoacetamidotetramethylrhodamines per molecule. This adduct is then used as a fluorescent phosphate biosensor, having 10-15-fold fluorescence increase on binding inorganic phosphate with very high affinity.
