Engineered Fluorescein-Binding Anticalin FluA (triple mutant variant) in RFC
Engineered version (triple mutant) of fluorescein-binding anticalin FluA with high binding affinity for fluorescein. This part is flanked by RFC pre- and suffix for further protein fusions. This is an improved version of BBa_K157004.
The fluoresceine binding Anticalin FluA was in 2013 already present in the Parts Registry in RFC 25. As this BioBrick is from 2008 we used a higher engineered variant with three additional mutations which make it 75-times more affine to fluorescein (KD from 152 nM to 2 nM [Vopel, Mühlbach and Skerra 2005]). This seemed an imporatant point as this Anticalin was twice present in the finals of iGEM (Freiburg Team 2008 and 2009) and an improved variant may be helpful for further iGEM teams as well as for our purpose to use it as a binding protein on trangenic moss. The outdated FluA with a lower affinity was BBa_K157004.
