       --Although not directly useful for people working with Clontech reagents,
there are available vectors to make fusions to LexA in which the LexA
domain would be located at the C-terminus of the fusion.  It can make a
remarkable difference in the properties of the fusion protein in some
cases where important residues are known to be located at the N-terminus
of the fusion domain.  Anyone wishing info can email me -
