YX-type (expression) shuttle vector
vector permitting construction of fusion proteins
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--5.8; BamHI--3.7, 2.1; NcoI--5.8.
Shuttle expression vector producing fusion proteins with human SOD (after Gln154 of SOD). Expression is regulated by the ADH2 UAS.
Constructed from pYASI1 by replacing the met-proinsulin sequence immediately downstream of Gln154 of the human SOD coding sequence with an EcoRI-containing adaptor: 5'AATTTGGGAATTCCATAATTAATTAAG3' /3'ACCCTTAAGGTATTAATTAATTCAGCT5'.
