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.
CRELD1 is a transmembrane glycoprotein. Epidermal growth factor(EGF)like domain exists in CRELD1. EGF-like repeats are a class of cysteine-rich domains that mediate interactions between proteins of diverse function. EGF domains are found in proteins that are either completely secreted or have transmembrane regions that tether the protein to the cell surface. CRELD1 contains a 333 amino acid acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD), two tandem transmembrane segments, and a second ECD of 15 aa. Defects in CRELD1 may cause susceptibility to atrioventricular septal defect type 2 which results in a persistent common atrioventricular canal.
