pTurboFP650-C is a mammalian expression vector encoding near-infrared fluorescent protein TurboFP650 (see reporter description). The vector allows generation of fusions to the TurboFP650 C-terminus and expression of TurboFP650 fusions or TurboFP650 alone in eukaryotic (mammalian) cells.
TurboFP650 codon usage is optimized for high expression in mammalian cells (humanized) [Haas et al., 1996]. To increase mRNA translation efficiency, Kozak consensus translation initiation site is generated upstream of the TurboFP650 coding sequence [Kozak, 1987]. Multiple cloning site (MCS) is located between TurboFP650 coding sequence and SV40 polyadenylation signal (SV40 polyA).
Generation of TurboFP650 fusion proteins
A localization signal or a gene of interest can be cloned into MCS of the vector. It will be expressed as a fusion to the TurboFP650 C-terminus when inserted in the same reading frame as TurboFP650 and no in-frame stop codons are present. TurboFP650-tagged fusions retain fluorescent properties of the native protein allowing fusion localization in vivo. Unmodified vector will express TurboFP650 when transfected into eukaryotic (mammalian) cells.
Expression in mammalian cells
pTurboFP650-C vector can be transfected into mammalian cells by any known transfection method. CMV promoter provides strong, constitutive expression of TurboFP650 or its fusions in eukaryotic cells. If required, stable transformants can be selected using G418 [Gorman, 1985].
