  • Vector backbone
    pBluescript KS+
  • Modifications to backbone
    The PTP cassette contains 745 bp of a TbU1-70K C-terminal coding region, a NotI restriction site, the PTP tag coding sequence, the translation stop codon TGA, and 470 bp of 3′ flank from TbRPA1, the gene encoding the largest subunit of RNA polymerase I. The resistance marker cassette contains the neomycin phosphotransferase gene (NEOr) flanked 5′ and 3′ by the intergenic regions of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) genes 2 and 3 and of β- and α-tubulin genes, respectively. In a further development of the original resistance marker cassette, we separated the HSP70 intergenic region from NEOr by an NdeI restriction site and NEOr from the tubulin flank by BamHI, HpaI, and BstBI restrictions sites.

Depositor Comments

The PTP tag is a derivative of the original TAP tag and has CBP replaced by ProtC.
Gene flanks providing RNA processing signals for PTP fusion and resistance marker are the 3′ flank of TbRPA1 (RPA1-3′), HSP70 genes 2 and 3 intergenic region (H23), the β-α tubulin intergenic region (T), and the 5′ flank of TbRPA2 (RPA2-5′).
pC-PTP-NEO contains a target sequence (U1-70K) which can be replaced by the gene of interest.
