  • To develop the I-TRAP method for identifying M. tuberculosis promoters dependent on the expression of σ E, a strain of M. smegmatis over-expressing the M. tuberculosis σ E, a σ Emutant strain of M. smegmatis, and a M. tuberculosis promoter-trap library were created.

  • Construction of σ E-over-expressing strain of M. smegmatis

  • The σ E-over-expressing strain of M. smegmatis was made by transforming M. smegmatis LR222 bacteria with pSEint.

  • A partial cDNA clone homologous to AtCOP1 has been previously identified in mammals, containing all three conserved protein-protein interaction domains [ 20 ] . Remarkably, when expressed in plant cells, the mammalian COP1-reporter fusion protein exhibited a light-regulated nuclear localization pattern similar to AtCOP1 [ 20 ] . Although mammalian COP1 failed to rescue the Arabidopsis cop1 mutants, over-expression of the amino-terminal half of mammalian COP1 in Arabidopsis caused a dominant-negative phenotype, resembling the effect of over-expressing the corresponding fragment of AtCOP1 [ 20 21 ] .

  • The system also provides powerful controls for genetic background effects, because control (no DOX) and over-expressing (+DOX) flies have identical genetic backgrounds and therefore any differences in life span must be due to DOX administration and gene overexpression.
