Title: PROTEINS AND PEPTIDE TAGS WITH ENHANCED RATE OF SPONTANEOUS ISOPEPTIDE BOND FORMATION AND USES THEREOF
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a two-part linker comprising a peptide tag (peptide) and a polypeptide (protein) that is capable of spontaneously forming an isopeptide bond, particularly wherein: a) said peptide comprises an amino acid sequence as set forth in SEQ ID NO: 1, wherein: (i) X at position 1 is arginine or no amino acid; (ii) X at position 2 is glycine or no amino acid; (iii) X at position 5 is histidine or threonine; (iv) X at position 11 is alanine, glycine or valine; and (v) X at position 14 is arginine or lysine, wherein when X at position 1 is no amino acid, X at position 2 is no amino acid; and b) said polypeptide comprises: i) an amino acid sequence as set forth in SEQ ID NO: 2; ii) a portion of (i) comprising an amino acid sequence as set forth in SEQ ID NO: 101; iii) an amino acid sequence with at least 80% sequence identity to a sequence as set forth in SEQ ID NO: 2, wherein said amino acid sequence comprises a lysine at position 34, a glutamic acid at position 80 and one or more of the following: 1) threonine at position 5; 2) proline at position 16; 3) arginine at position 40; 4) histidine at position 65; 5) proline at position 92; 6) aspartic acid at position 100: 7) glutamic acid at position 108; and 8) threonine at position 116, wherein the specified amino acid residues are at positions equivalent to the positions in SEQ ID NO: 2; or iv) a portion of (iii) comprising an amino acid sequence with at least 80% sequence identity to a sequence as set forth in SEQ ID NO: 101, wherein the amino acid sequence comprises a lysine at position 10, a glutamic acid at position 56 and one or more of the following: 1) arginine at position 16; 2) histidine at position 41; 3) proline at position 68; and 4) aspartic acid at position 76, wherein the specified amino acid residues are at positions equivalent to the positions in SEQ ID NO: 101, and wherein said peptide and polypeptide are capable of spontaneously forming an isopeptide bond between the aspartic acid residue at position 10 of SEQ ID NO: 1 and the lysine residue at position 34 of SEQ ID NO: 2 or position 10 of SEQ ID NO: 101.
