Abstract

sion at 386 nm. Actin was used at a final concentration of 2.0 M (5%–10 % pyrene labeled) in 1 polymerization buffer (10 mM Imid-Construction of Deletion and Substitution CP Mutants A tandem CP bacterial expression vector (pET-3d/CP), allowing azole [pH 7.0], 50 mM KCl, 1 mM MgCl2, 0.2 mM ATP, 0.5 mM DTT, 0.2 mM CaCl2, 1 mM EGTA). Ca2-G-actin was “primed ” for 90 sfor cotranslation of chicken 1 and 1 subunits from a single plas-mid, was a kind gift from Dr. Takashi Obinata [S1]. Plasmids for prior to the initiation of polymerization by adding a 1/10th volume of 10 mM EGTA, 1 mM MgCl2 to exchange Ca2 for Mg2. A 1/20thexpression of mutants were created by PCR using the wt plasmid as a template and the QuikChange Site-Directed Mutagenesis Kit volume of 20 polymerization buffer (200 mM Imidazole [pH 7.0], 1 M KCl, 20 mM MgCl2, 20 mM EGTA) was then added to initiate(Stratagene). The resulting constructs were verified by sequencing the entire coding region in both directions. Oligonucleotide primers polymerization. CP species, GST-fusion proteins, or the free pep-tides were in 10 mM Imidazole (pH 7.0), 50 mM KCl, 1 mM MgCl2,are listed in the Supplemental Table S1. pET-3d/CP(C34), en-coding a 1 C-terminal 34 amino acid deletion mutant (codon R244 0.5 mM DTT, 1 mM EGTA. CP species were added to the actin mixture immediately after priming followed by addition of 20 poly-to a stop), was constructed using the forward primer 1 and the reverse primer 2. pET-3d/CP(C28), encoding a 1 C-terminal 28 merization buffer and finally by addition of SAS. The solution was mixed and placed in the fluorometer, with a total dead time ofamino acid deletion mutant (codon P250 to a stop), was constructed using the forward primer 3 and the reverse primer 4. pET-3d / 12–15 s
