Abstract

A set of vectors has been constructed to facilitate the fusion of heterologous sequences to the C terminus of the maltose-binding protein (MBP) of Escherichia coli. The plasmids carry a cloning region comprising two blunt cloning sites, a BamHI site and multiple stop codons, and this has been placed in each reading frame so that translational fusions to MBP can be generated and manipulated with ease. To demonstrate the utility of this system, recombinant proteins have been engineered in which staphylococcal enterotoxin A has been fused to MBP.
