pGEM-T Vector Information

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.

pGEM-T Simple Usage Suggestion:

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.

Background

Colony stimulating factor 2 receptor, beta, low-affinity (CSF2RB) also known as CD131 antigen (CD131), cytokine receptor common subunit beta, GM-CSF/IL-3/IL-5 receptor common beta-chain, interleukin 3 receptor/granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor 3 receptor, beta (IL3RB), is the common beta chain of the high affinity receptor for IL-3, IL-5 and CSF. Defects in this protein have been reported to be associated with protein alveolar proteinosis (PAP). CD131 belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. The cluster of differentiation (cluster of designation) (often abbreviated as CD) is a protocol used for the identification and investigation of cell surface molecules present on white blood cells initially but found in almost any kind of cell of the body, providing targets for immunophenotyping of cells. Defects in CD131/CSF2RB are the cause of pulmonary surfactant metabolism dysfunction type 5 (SMDP5). SMDP5 is a rare lung disorder due to impaired surfactant homeostasis. It is characterized by alveolar filling with floccular material that stains positive using the periodic acid-Schiff method and is derived from surfactant phospholipids and protein components. Excessive lipoproteins accumulation in the alveoli results in severe respiratory distress.
