Depositor Comments

The plasmid is used to express the plasmid segregation protein, ParM, from E. col. The protein is modified for use as the scaffold of an ADP biosensor, MDCC-ParM. A single cysteine mutation is for label attachment (I27C); there is a mutation to inhibit filament formation (K33A), two mutations to weaken ATP binding (T174A and T175N), a mutation to change the exposed cysteine (C287A) and a C-terminal His6 tag to aid purification. When labelled with a single N-[2-(1-maleimidyl)ethyl]-7-diethylaminocoumarin-3-carboxamide (MDCC) fluorophore, this biosensor has a fluorescence intensity change of up to 4-fold and can be used to measure ADP in the range of tens of nanomolar to tens of micromolar in the presence of up to~200 μM ATP.
