SHX3908 C. elegans C42D4.3(zju273[C42D4.3::8×MS2]) IV; zjuEx2144. Show Description
8xMS2 tag inserted at C-terminus of endogenous C42D4.3 locus. zjuEx2144 [semo-1p::MCP::24×Suntag + col-19p::scFv::sfGFP + ttx-3p::RFP]. Pick ttx-3::RFP+ animals to maintain. MS2-based signal Amplification with Suntag System (MASS). Enhanced MS2-based single-molecule RNA imaging system utilizes Suntag signal amplifier. Suntag is a 19 amino acid protein tag that binds to its specific single-chain variable fragment (scFv) antibody. zjuEx2144 transgene expression provides MS2 coat protein (MCP) fused to 24xSuntag and scFv tagged with GFP. When all the required elements of the MASS (MS2, MCP, 24xSuntag, and scFv antibodies) are present, bright GFP foci will mark the tagged RNA.
