発明の概要(英語) (US7166447)
A probe for protein-protein interaction analysis suitable for analyzing protein-protein interactions of various proteins with high accuracy and in a simple manner and a method for analyzing interaction of two proteins by using the probe.
With the probe, protein splicing is caused by protein-protein interaction, and a physicochemically or biochemically detectable protein is regenerated.
特許請求の範囲(英語) [claim1]
1. A set of probes for analyzing protein A–
protein B interactions, which set comprises:
(i) probe "a" comprising a fusion polypeptide wherein the carboxyl terminus of an N-terminal portion of an indicator protein is fused to the N-terminus of the N-terminal portion of an intein polypeptide, and wherein the C-terminus of the intein polypeptide is fused to a target protein A;
and(ii) probe "b" comprising a fusion polypeptide wherein the amino terminus of a C-terminal portion of the indicator protein is fused to the C-terminus of the C-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide, and wherein the N-terminus of the intein polypeptide is fused to a target protein B,wherein the N-terminal portion of the intein and the C-terminal portion of the intein are sufficient to effect trans-splicing, andwherein the N-terminal portion of the indicator protein and the C-terminal portion of the indicator protein constitute a functioning indicator protein after intein mediated trans-splicing occurs.
[claim2]
2. The set of probes according to claim 1 wherein the indicator protein is a green-fluorescent protein or a luminescent enzyme.
[claim3]
3. The set of probes for analyzing protein A–
protein B interaction of claim 2 wherein the luminescent enzyme is a luciferase.
[claim4]
4. The set of probes for analyzing protein A–protein B interaction of claim 1, wherein the C-terminus of the intein polypeptide of probe "a" and the N-terminus of the intein polypeptide of probe "b" each further comprise a peptide linker sequence.
[claim5]
5. A method for analyzing protein A–protein B interaction by using the set of probes of claim 1, which method comprises:
(i) preparing a recombinant polynucleotide encoding the fused protein of probe "a" under the control of a promoter,(ii) preparing a recombinant polynucleotide encoding the fused protein of probe "b" under the control of a promoter(iii) transforming an eukaryotic host cell with the recombinant polynucleotides of (1) and (2) and culturing the cell under conditions permitting the expression of the fused proteins encoded by (i) and (ii), so that intein-mediated trans-splicing may occur, and(iv) detecting the interaction of protein A with protein B by measuring a change of a signal from the indicator protein resulting from intein-mediated trans-splicing and that consists of the N-terminus of the indicator protein and the C-terminus of the indicator protein,whereby the interaction of protein A and protein B is analyzed.
[claim6]
6. A vector for expressing a set of probes for analyzing protein A–protein B interaction, which vector co-expresses two probes wherein probe "a" is a fusion polypeptide comprising an N-terminal portion of an intein polypeptide and an N-terminal portion of an indicator protein, and probe "b" is a fusion polypeptide comprising a C-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide and a C-terminal portion of the indicator protein, wherein the vector comprises:
(1) a polynucleotide encoding the fusion polypeptide of probe "a" wherein the coding region for the N-terminal portion of the indicator protein is ligated at the 5' side of the coding region for the N-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide, and a 3' side of the coding region for the N-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide is a cloning site for ligating a polynucleotide encoding protein A;
and,(ii) a polynucleotide encoding the fusion polypeptide of probe "b" wherein the coding region for the C-terminal portion of the indicator protein is ligated at the 3' side of the region for the C-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide, and a 5' side of the coding region for the C-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide is a cloning site for ligating a polynucleotide encoding protein B;wherein the N-terminal portion of the intein and the C-terminal portion of the intein are sufficient to effect trans-splicing, andwherein the N-terminal portion of the indicator protein and the C-terminal portion of the indicator protein constitute a functioning indicator protein after intein mediated trans-splicing occurs.
[claim7]
7. The vector of claim 6 wherein the indicator protein is a green-fluorescent protein or a luminescent enzyme.
[claim8]
8. A method for analyzing protein A–protein B interaction by using the expression vector of claim 6, which comprises: ligating a polynucleotide encoding protein A into the expression vector at the 3' side of the coding region for the N-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide and ligating a polynucleotide encoding protein B into the expression vector at the 5' side of the coding region for the C-terminal portion of the intein polypeptide;(ii) transforming an eukaryotic host cell with the vector of step (1) and expressing probe "a" and probe "b" in the eukaryotic host cell under conditions permitting excision of the intein portions of probes "a" and "b" upon the interaction of proteins A and B;
and(3) detecting the interaction of protein A with protein B by measuring a change of a signal from the indicator protein that is a fusion protein of the N-terminus of the indicator protein and the C-terminus of the indicator protein,whereby the interaction of protein A and protein B is analyzed.
