Name
MS2 bacteriophage coat protein binding stem loop
Description
Description

The Tag:BS(MS2-CP) entry in FlyBase represents a 19bp RNA stem loop structure that is specifically bound by the coat protein of the MS2 RNA bacteriophage (Tag:MS2-CP). Tag:BS(MS2-CP) and Tag:MS2-CP thus form a binary RNA-protein interacting pair which are typically used to either monitor or alter the localization of an mRNA of a gene of interest, depending on what other sequence the Tag:MS2-CP component is fused to. For example, if a transgene or modified endogenous locus in which the Tag:MS2-CP protein is fused to a fluorescent protein is combined with a second transgene or modified endogenous locus encoding an mRNA of interest tagged with the Tag:BS(MS2-CP) stem loop, the localization of this tagged mRNA can be followed in vivo. Conversely, if the Tag:MS2-CP protein is fused to sequence that targets it to a particular subcellular location, it be used to target an mRNA of interest tagged with the Tag:BS(MS2-CP) stem loop to that location, so that the effect of altering the location of the tagged mRNA can be studied.
