General description

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 V5 epitope tag that can be fused to a gene of interest to allow protein detection and/or purification. The sequence of the tag is: GKPIPNPLLGLDST.

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 TEV cleavage tag. The protein sequence of the cleavage tag is: ENLYFQG. Cleavage occurs between the Glu and Gly residues. TEV is often reported to have better specificity for its recognition site compared to EKT Thrombin or Faxtor Xa.

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

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
