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.
Cluster of Differentiation 112 (CD112), also known as poliovirus receptor related protein 2 (PVRL2 or PRR2), is a single-pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the Immunoglobulin superfamily. CD112 protein also serves as an entry for certain mutant strains of herpes simplex virus and pseudorabies virus, and thus is involved in cell to cell spreading of these viruses. CD112 protein has been identified as the ligand for DNAM-1 (CD226), and the interaction of CD226/CD112 protein can induce NK cell- and CD8+ T cell-mediated cytotoxicity and cytokine secretion. CD112 has been regarded as a critical component in allergic reactions, and accordingly may function as a novel target for anti-allergic therapy.
