Depositor Comments

This baculovirus transfer vector enables a protein of interest to be produced with a biotin acceptor peptide (BAP) fused to its N-terminus in Spodoptera frugiperda cells. pDW464 also overproduces E. coli biotin holoenzyme synthetase (BirA), under polyhedron promoter control, so that BAP-tagged proteins can be biotinylated in Spodoptera frugiperda cells. pDW464 is designed to use in conjunction with the Bac-to-Bac system (Invitrogen) for constructing recombinant baculoviruses.
