The pGEM-T is 3kb in length, and contains the amplicin resistance gene, conferring selection of the plasmid in E. coli, and the ori site which is the bacterial origin of replication. The plasmid has multiple cloning sites as shown below. The coding sequence was inserted by TA cloning. Many E. coli strains are suitable for the propagation of this vector including JM109, DH5α and TOP10.
The coding sequence can be easily obtained by digesting the vector with proper restriction enzyme(s). The coding sequence can also be amplified by PCR with M13 primers, or primer pair SP6 and T7.
ADAMTSL1 is a secreted molecule resembling members of the ADAMTS protein family of matrix metalloproteinases. Both ADAMTS proteins and ADAM protein family contain a disintegrin and a metalloprotease domain. Metallospondins is collective term for members of ADAMTS protein family. ADAMTS proteins lack the EGF-like domain found normally in members of the ADAM protein family. They also do not possess the canonical disintegrin sequence found in the ADAM protein family. It contains the domains found in members of the ADAMTS protein family with the exception of the pro-metalloprotease and the disintegrin-like domain typical of this family. ADAMTSL1 gene is expressed in adult skeletal muscle. ADAMTSL1 may play an important role in the extracellular matrix as it is deposited in the cell substratum in a punctate fashion and is excluded from focal contacts.
