This plasmid is designed to express tagged proteins in mammalian cells either by transient transfection or by creating stable cell lines. It contains a puromycin resistance expression cassette using the human Ubiquitin promoter to drive expression and allow for the selection of cells containing the plasmid.
About the Peptide Tag:This plasmid contains a c-terminal Hexa-Histidine (6His) affinity tag that can be fused to a gene of interest to allow protein detection and/or purification. The sequence of the tag is: HHHHHH. This plasmid also contains a secondary STag protein tag. The sequence of this tag is: KETAAAKFERQHMDSWe provide a range of dual peptide tag plasmids. This is because some peptide tags provide specific biological properties (e. g., small molecule affinity new epitopes solubility or protein secretion) that are not provided by others.
About the Cleavage Tag: This plasmid also encodes a protease cleavage site that is designed to be positioned between your gene of interest and the tag to allow the removal of the tag following protein purification or isolation. This plasmid contains a EKT cleavage tag. The protein sequence of the cleavage tag is: DDDDK. Enterokinase (EKT) protease cleaves after the Lysine residue. It can cleave at other basic residues but this is dependent on protein confirmation. If a proline follows the site it will not cut. None of our products contain a proline after the site.
Promoter Expression Level: This plasmid contains the mammalian CMV promoter to drive gene expression. We have tested all of our mammalian promoters in a range of cell types and CMV is consistently the strongest in those we have studied. However there are many reports of the CMV promoter demonstrating silencing by methylation in long-term culture.

The efficacy of vaccine adjuvants such as Toll-like receptor agonists (TLRa) can be improved through formulation and delivery approaches. Here, we attached small molecule TLR-7/8a to polymer scaffolds (polymer-TLR-7/8a) and evaluated how different physicochemical properties of the TLR-7/8a and polymer
Dickkopf-3 (Dkk-3) is a secreted protein whose expression is downregulated in many types of cancer. Endogenous Dkk-3 is required for formation of acini in 3D cultures of prostate epithelial cells, where it inhibits transforming growth factor (TGF)-β/Smad signaling. Here, we
The Notch3 signaling pathway is thought to play a critical role in cancer development, as evidenced by the Notch3 amplification and rearrangement observed in human cancers. However, the molecular mechanism by which Notch3 signaling contributes to tumorigenesis is largely unknown.
Recycling of signaling proteins is a common phenomenon in diverse signaling pathways. In photoreceptors of Drosophila, light absorption by rhodopsin triggers a phospholipase Cβ-mediated opening of the ion channels transient receptor potential (TRP) and TRP-like (TRPL) and generates the visual
