We describe here the cloning of full-length ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) cDNA and characterization of its activity. Full-length ATM cDNA is cloned into an inducible EBV-based vector (pMEP4) and its expression analyzed in a stably transfected cell line. ATM protein induction is monitored by immunoblotting with antibodies against both ATM and a FLAG sequence tag in the recombinant protein. Extracts from irradiated cells are immunoprecipitated with anti-ATM antibodies, and protein kinase activity is measured using p53(1-44)-specific substrate or by immunoblotting extracts with an anti-phosphoserine 15 p53-specific antibody. Missense mutations affecting ATM kinase activity are detected using in vitro mutagenesis of ATM cDNA followed by the procedures outlined above.
