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

ENPEP, also known as aminopeptidase A, is a member of the peptidase M1 family. Members of this family are involved in response to cadmium ion and proteolysis. They located in 6 components and are expressed in 26 plant structures. ENPEP is expressed by epithelial cells of the proximal tubule cells and the glomerulus of the nephron. It also can be detected in a variety of other tissues. ENPEP probably plays a role in regulating growth and differentiation of early B-lineage cells. It also may play a role in the catabolic pathway of the renin-angiotensin system. ENPEP is a zinc-dependent membrane-bound aminopeptidase that catalyzes the cleavage of glutamatic and aspartatic amino acid residues from the N-terminus of polypeptides. It degrades vasoconstricting angiotensin II into angiotensin III and therefore helps to regulate blood pressure.
