The C. elegans Transcription Factor Collection was created to enable the discovery of transcription factor – promoter interactions by means of yeast one-hybrid (Y1H) assays. The 755 C. elegans transcription factor ORFs present in this collection represent ~80% of all predicted C. elegans transcription factors and have have been cloned into the Gateway-compatible Y1H prey vector pDEST-AD.
The expressed fusion-protein product will induce a GAL4-dependent reporter when the transcription factor domain binds to a promoter bait immediately upstream of the reporter. Bait reporter strains are not included in this collection, but may be constructed from any of the cloned promoters in the C. elegans Promoter Collection (Catalog #PCE1181) by recombinational cloning.
Alternatively, the C. elegans Transcription Factor Collection can be used as prey strains in yeast two-hybrid Y2H assays for the purpose of discovering homodimer and heterodimer transcription factor complexes. Appropriate bait strains may be constructed from the C. elegans ORF Collection (Catalog #OCE4518) by recombinational cloning.
Gateway-adapted transcription factor collection
Represents ~80% of all predicted C. elegans transcription factors
Useful for both yeast one-hybrid and two-hybrid assays
Each construct is available in yeast for mating with bait strains or in an E. coli host for transofrmation into bait strains
We provide certain clone resources developed by leading academic laboratories. Many of these resources address the needs of specialized research communities not served by other commercial entities. In order to provide these as a public resource, we depend on the contributing academic laboratories for quality control.
Therefore, these are distributed in the format provided by the contributing institution "as is" with no additional product validation or guarantee. We are not responsible for any errors or performance issues. Additional information can be found in the product manual as well as in associated published articles (if available). Alternatively, the source academic institution can be contacted directly for troubleshooting.
