FLAG Tag Info

FLAG-tag, or FLAG octapeptide, is a polypeptide protein tag that can be added to a protein using recombinant DNA technology. It can be used for affinity chromatography, then used to separate recombinant, overexpressed protein from wild-type protein expressed by the host organism. It can also be used in the isolation of protein complexes with multiple subunits.

A FLAG-tag can be used in many different assays that require recognition by an antibody. If there is no antibody against the studied protein, adding a FLAG-tag to this protein allows one to follow the protein with an antibody against the FLAG sequence. Examples are cellular localization studies by immunofluorescence or detection by SDS PAGE protein electrophoresis.

The peptide sequence of the FLAG-tag from the N-terminus to the C-terminus is: DYKDDDDK (1012 Da). It can be used in conjunction with other affinity tags, for example a polyhistidine tag (His-tag), HA-tag or Myc-tag. It can be fused to the C-terminus or the N-terminus of a protein. Some commercially available antibodies (e.g., M1/4E11) recognize the epitope only when it is present at the N-terminus. However, other available antibodies (e.g., M2) are position-insensitive.

Background

Tubulin folding cofactor A belongs to the TBCA family. It is one of four proteins (cofactors A, D, E, and C) involved in the early step of the tubulin folding pathway. These proteins can fold intermediates and finally lead to correctly folded beta-tubulin. It is believed that tubulin folding cofactors A and D play a role in capturing and stabilizing beta-tubulin intermediates in a quasi-native confirmation. Tubulin folding cofactor E binds to the cofactor D/beta-tubulin complex; interaction with tubulin folding cofactor C then causes the release of beta-tubulin polypeptides that are committed to the native state.
