Depositor Comments

To construct pMAL-EFSep the gene encoding EF-Sep, was cloned between the NdeI and BamHI sites in the pET20b plasmid (Novaven) to
add a C-terminal His6 tag. This fusion construct was then PCR-amplified using primers adding MfeI and PstI restriction sites. The PCR product was cloned in-frame between EcoRI and PstI in pMALc2x (New England Biolabs) to add an N-terminal maltose binding protein (MBP) tag.

To prevent possible enzymatic dephosphorylation of O-phospho-L-serine (Sep) in vivo, the gene encoding phosphoserine phosphatase (serB), which is catalyzing the last step in serine biosynthesis, was deleted from Escherichia coli strains Top10 (Top10∆serB - Addgene #34928) and BL21 (BL21∆serB - Addgene #34929). These strains are required hosts when using this plasmid.
