pMD18-T Simple Vector is a high-efficiency TA cloning vector constructed from pUC18, of which the initial multiple cloning sites (MCS) were destroyed. Thus the cDNA should be amplified by PCR with primers containing a restriction site for subclone. Competent cells appropriate for pUC18 are also appropriated for the Vector, e.g. JM109, DH5α, TOP10. The pMD18-T Simple Vector is 2.6kb in size. Selection of the plasmid in E. coli is conferred by the ampicillin resistance gene. The coding sequence was inserted by TA cloning at site 425.
The coding sequence can be amplified by PCR with M13-47 and RV-M primers.
Interleukin-1 receptor accessory protein-like 1 (IL1RAPL1) is a member of interleukin-1 receptor family. The protein structurally comprises three extracellular immunoglobulin domains, which presumably mediate binding of an as yet unidentified ligand, a transmembrane region, and an intracellular domain, which is likely to enable signalling via the NFkB pathway. The means of signalling is almost certain to be identical to that used by the IL1R family and the more distally related Toll protein. L1RAPL1 protein physically interacts via its 150 aa C-terminal domain with neuronal calcium sensor-1 (NCS-1), a protein widely expressed in neurons and the related chromaffin and PC12 cells. IL1RAPL1 is an integral membrane protein responsible for a nonsyndromic form of mental retardation (MR). It is suggested to affect human cognitive ability to some extent, especially the memory and concentration capability.
