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.
Clec4b2, also known as mDCAR1, is a member of the DCIR/DCAR family. Expression of Clec4b2 was strongly tissue dependent. Clec4b2 expression on DCs was restricted to the CD8(+) DC subset in spleen and thymus and on subpopulations of CD11b(+) myeloid cells in bone marrow and spleen, whereas the molecule was not detectable on both cell types in lymph nodes and peripheral blood. Clec4b2 is a functional receptor on cells of the immune system and provides further insights into the regulation of immune responses by CLRs.
