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

Heat shock factor protein 1, also known as heat shock transcription factor 1, HSF1 and HSTF1, is a cytoplasm and nucleus protein which belongs to the HSF family. HSF1 is the major transcription factor of HSPs (heat shock proteins) in response to various stresses. Wild type HSF1 (heat shock transcriptional factor 1) is normally inactive. HSF1 / HSTF1 is a DNA-binding protein that specifically binds heat shock promoter elements (HSE) and activates transcription. In higher eukaryotes, HSF is unable to bind to the HSE unless the cells are heat shocked. HSF1 / HSTF1 protects cells and organisms against various types of stress, either by triggering a complex response that promotes cell survival or by triggering cell death when stress-induced alterations cannot be rescued. HSF1 / HSTF1 is the key protein in regulating stress response. It can be activated under heat, oxidative or another stress conditions. Dominant-positive and dominant-negative HSF1 are two types of HSF1 mutants. Both of them gain the DNA binding activity in the absence of stress. In addition, dominant-positive HSF1 acquires transcriptional activity, which dominant-negative HSF1 does not acquire. HSF1 / HSTF1 was also reported to contribute to cell resistance against genotoxic stress, such as that caused by doxorubicin, an anticancer drug in common clinical use.
