Contactin-4-derived peptide binding to NADH Oxidase of S. pneumoniae
Short peptide of 14 amino acids corresponding to amino acids 7 to 19 of the human protein Contactin-4 (isoform 3, UniProt Q8IWV2-3). It has been shown to bind to NADH oxidase (NOX) of Streptococcus pneumoniae and inhibit bacterial binding to human A549 cells (Muchnik et. al., 2013). Displayed on the surface of Bacillus subtilis, it should enable B. subtilis to bind specifically to S. pneumoniae.
This part was generated in a modified version of RFC25, where a strong Shine Dalgarno Sequence (SD) is included, and has the following prefix and suffix:
|prefix with EcoRI, NotI, XbaI, SD and NgoMIV:||GAATTCGCGGCCGCTTCTAGAGTAAGGAGGAGCCGGC|
|suffix with AgeI, SpeI, NotI and PstI:||ACCGGTTAATACTAGTAGCGGCCGCTGCAG|
Sites of restriction enzymes generating compatible overhangs have the same color:
EcoRI and PstI in blue, NotI in green, XbaI and SpeI in red, NgoMIV and AgeI in orange. Shine-Dalgarno sequence and stop codons are underlined.
