This plasmid is designed to express tagged proteins in yeast cells (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). The plasmid contains an auxotrophic Uracil selection expression cassette (URA3) that allows for the positive selection of yeast that are deficient in the URA3 gene (YEL021W). This is typically achieved by growing the yeast in minimal media that is reconstituted with the essential amino acids and nucleotides but excluding Uracil.
About the Peptide Tag:This plasmid contains an n-terminal Strep affinity tag that can be fused to a gene of interest to allow protein detection and/or purification. The sequence of the tag is: WSHPQFEK.
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 FXa cleavage tag. The protein sequence of the cleavage tag is: IEGR. It cleaves after the Arg residue but can also cleave less frequently at secondary basic sites. Its most common secondary cleave site is between the Gly and Arg residues although the frequency of these events is protein specific.
Promoter Expression Level: This plasmid contains the Yeast Elongation Factor Alpha promoter (TEF1). This is the strongest of the yeast promoters that we sell. It is a constitutive promoter and requires no induction. If you are interested in weaker promoters levels than we also stock plasmids that contain the following promoters in order of decreasing strength TPI (strong), ADHI (medium), STE5 (weak). We also stock Galactose inducible promoter plasmids if inducible expression is required. Please contact us for further information.

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
