From Karl Johnson, Haverford College, October 2005

RSP3 genomic sequence as originally described by Williams et al. (“pEK RS3”). A 36 bp insertion was cloned into a Stu I site near the end of the RSP3 coding sequence, such that an HA epitope is encoded near the extreme carboxy-terminus of RSP3 (Kozminski et al, 1993) Digestion with Eco R1 releases the entire genomic+tag insert (~4Kb) from the vector (3 Kb). Transformation of this plasmid into pf14 resulted in restoration of wild-type motility and the presence of HA-tagged RSP3 in flagella.

From Carolyn Silflow, University of Minnesota, September 2007

UNI2 gene tagged with 3xHA (3 copies of the 9-amino acid influenza hemagglutinin epitope)

To create pML9.7-3xHA , the pML9.7 plasmid was first modified by removing sequences between the EcoRV site and the Xba I site in the multi-cloning site positioned near the 3’ end of the UNI2 gene. This step removed the Bam HI site from the multi-cloning site. The plasmid was then digested with Bam HI which cleaves the UNI2 gene at a position 13 codons upstream of the stop codon. The Bam HI overhang was filled in using Klenow. A blunt-ended Nru I/Sma I fragment from the p3xHA plasmid was then ligated into the blunted Bam HI site.
