Oncogene 20, 260-269. Modulation of apoptosis by procaspase-2 short isoform: selective inhibition of chromatin condensation, apoptotic body formation and phosphatidylserine externalization 2001

Droin, N., Rebe, C., Bichat, F., Hammann, A., Bertrand, R., and Solary, E.

Notes: The cDNA for the short isoform of the caspase-2 mRNA was amplified and cloned directly into the pTARGET™ Mammalian Expression Vector. The protein was stably expressed in U937 human leukemic cells by selection with the antibiotic G-418.  Stable clones were identified by PCR of the genomic DNA of selected colonies with primers to the T7 promoter of the pTARGET™ Vector and the downstream primer of the caspase-2 message. Overexpression of the protein interfered with etoposide-mediated apoptosis.

Biochemistry 37, 15050-15056. A novel Arg362Ser mutation in the sterol 27-hydroxylase gene (CYP27): Its effects on pre-mRNA splicing and enzyme activity. 1998

Chen, W., Kubota, S., Ujike, H., Ishihara, T., Seyama, Y.

Notes: A minigene was constructed with five exons and four introns from exons 5-9 of the CYP27 gene. The 2111bp product was generated with primers containing a start codon and a stop codon. The product was directly cloned into the pTARGET™ Mammalian expression vector and transfected into COS-1cells. RNA was isolated from these cells and RT-PCR was performed to amplify the spliced product. This assay could distinguish between normal splicing of the third intron and aberrant splicing of due to the Arg362Ser mutation. The proteins produced by the normal and mutant minigenes were also assessed by immunoblotting. (1333)

Chen, W., Kubota, S., Teramoto, T., Nishimura, Y., Yonemoto, K., Seyama, Y.

Notes: Genomic analysis noted a single base change between wild type and mutant. To see if this base change was enough for alternative mRNA splicing, minigenes were constructed and subcloned into the pTargeT™ Vector. The mutant and wild-type minigenes were transfected into COS-1 cells. Forty-eight hours post-transfection total RNA was isolated and analyzed by RT-PCR. Transfectants with the mutant sequence did produce a different product due to alternative splicing. (1331)

Nucl. Acids Res. 25, 5132-5134. Antibody-ribosome-mRNA (ARM) complexes as efficient selection particles for in vitro display and evolution of antibody combining sites 1997

He, M. and Taussig, M.J.

Notes: This article describes the use of the TNT® T7 Quick Coupled Transcription/Translation System in a process called the ‘ARM’ technique where antibody-ribosome-mRNA (ARM) complexes are selected by protein binding. The ARM complexes are generated during translation of mRNAs that lack stop codons. The functional antibody that is still complexed with the ribosome and mRNA is selected by protein-coupled magnetic beads, and the associated mRNA is reverse-transcribed and amplified by polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The PCR products are then used in subsequent cycles of the method. (2016)
