For expression of GST fusion proteins in human cells, we cloned wild-type and mutant TRF2 into pDEST-27 (Invitrogen). MCPH1 and sequences encoding tandem repeats of the YRL (2ÂYRL) or YRA (2ÂYRA) peptides were cloned into SFB-tagged pBabe-based vectors43, where SFB stands for S-, Flag- and streptavidin binding tag43.
