Depositor Comments

Gateway-modified yeast two-hybrid Activation domain vector. Use this vector for Gateway cloning of a cDNA to be used to test a directed yeast two-hybrid interaction. This vector was modified from plasmid pACT2.2 by placing a Gateway acceptor cassette in the SmaI site of pACT2.2. To facilitate subcloning of a given DNA insert into this plasmid, Gateway recombinational attachment sites should be incorporated into primers used for amplificiation, as outlined in the Invitrogen Gateway manual. (Gateway is a registered trademark of Invitrogen Corporation.) Please note that the "author's map" is the map of the original pACT2.2 vector upon which pACT2.2gtwy is derived - it is not a map of pACT2.2gtwy.
