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.
HepaCAM2 belongs to the immunoglobulin family. HepaCAM2, together with HEPACAM1, are cell adhesion molecules. HEPACAM1 modulates cell adhesion and migration. It also inhibits cancer cell growth. HepaCAM2 contains 2 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains. The immunoglobulin domain is a type of protein domain that consists of a 2-layer sandwich of between 7 and 9 antiparallel β-strands arranged in two β-sheets with a Greek key topology. Members of the immunoglobulin superfamily are found in hundreds of proteins of different functions.
