(ii) To insert CS1 (60 to 76), the following megaprimers were used: forward, 5′-CAGGCCAATGGACCACAAATTGCTCCGCCCAATGCCATTCTGCTGCTGCTGGCGCTCGGCGCGCTGGGCTGGACCGCCCTGCGCTCCTCCAAGCAACTGGACTGGGATGTTCGAAGCATTCAGCGC-3′; reverse, 5′-GCGCTGAATGCTTCGAACATCCCAGTCCAGTTGCTTGGAGGAGCGCAGGGCGGTCCAGCCCAGCGCGCCGAGCGCCAGCAGCAGCAGAATGGCATTGGGCGGAGCAATTTGTGGTCCATTGGCCTG-3′; p17 cDNA was amplified from total cDNA by PCR using the following primers: forward, 5′-ATG GCCAAGTCCAAGAACCAGAGCACAA-3′; reverse, 5′-CTACTCTGAAGCCTTTGTAGGGGCCTGG-3′. The resulting cDNA was inserted in vector PCR 2.1 using the TA-cloning kit (Thermo Life Technologies) and subcloned into FLAG-HA-pcDNA3.1 (a gift from A. Antebi, Addgene plasmid #52535) using the following primers: forward, 5′-CTGGCGGCTCGAATGGCCAAGTCCA-3′; reverse, 5′-TAGATGCATGCTCGACTACTCTGACTCTGAAGCCT-3′ and the Infusion HD Cloning Kit (Clontech), according to the manufacturer’s instructions. p17R68A, p17R107A, p17R111A, p17RYE28-30AAA, p17RKW14-16AAA, p17LKKPR21-25AAA, and p17Δ20 constructs were generated from FLAG-HA-pcDNA3.1-p17WT using the following primers: p17R68A: forward, 5′-CAGTCCCGAAAAGCCCAAAGAAATGG-3′; reverse, 5′-CCATTTCTTTGGGCTTTTCGGGACTG-3′; p17R107A: forward, 5′-CGTGAGTGCAGCTGCTGAGGCTATC-3′; reverse, 5′-GATAGCCTCACGTGCACTCACG-3′; p17R111A: forward, 5′-CAAGCTTGGGAAGGCTGCTCATGCC-3′; reverse, 5′-GGCATGAGCAGCCTTCCCAAGCTTG-3′; p17RYE28-30AAA: forward, 5′-CGTGCTCATGCCGCCATTGTCAAGG-3′; reverse, 5′-CCTTGACAATGGCGGCATGAGCAGG-3′; p17RKW14-16AAA: forward, 5′-CAGCACAAACAACCAGTCCGCAGCAGCGCAAAGAAATGGTCTC-3′; reverse, 5′-GAGACCATTTCTTTGCGCTGCTGCGGACTGGTTGTTTGTGCTG-3′; p17LKKPR21-25AAA: forward, 5′-GAAAATGGCAAAGAAATGGTGCGGCGGCGGCCTCACAAAGATACG-3′; reverse, 5′-CGTATCTTTGTGAGGCCGCCGCCGCACCATTTCTTTGCCATTTTC-3′; p17Δ20: forward, 5′-CACACTGGCGGCCGCTCGAATGCAATCCCTTAAGGGGGTGG-3′; reverse, 5′-CCACCCCCTTAAGGGATTGCATTCGAGCGGCCGCCAGTGTG-3′.
