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

Reticulon-4, also known as Foocen, Neurite outgrowth inhibitor, Nogo protein, Neuroendocrine-specific protein, Neuroendocrine-specific protein C homolog, RTN-x, Reticulon-5 and RTN4, is a multi-pass membrane protein which contains one reticulon domain. Isoform 1 of RTN4 is specifically expressed in brain and testis and weakly in heart and skeletal muscle. Isoform 2 of RTN4 is widely expressed except for the liver. Isoform 3 of RTN4 is expressed in brain, skeletal muscle and adipocytes. Isoform 4 of RTN4 is testis-specific. Reticulon-4 / RTN4 is a developmental neurite growth regulatory factor with a role as a negative regulator of axon-axon adhesion and growth, and as a facilitator of neurite branching. Reticulon-4 / RTN4 regulates neurite fasciculation, branching and extension in the developing nervous system. Reticulon-4 / RTN4 is involved in down-regulation of growth, stabilization of wiring and restriction of plasticity in the adult CNS. It regulates the radial migration of cortical neurons via an RTN4R-LINGO1 containing receptor complex. Isoform 2 of RTN4 reduces the anti-apoptotic activity of Bcl-xl and Bcl-2. This is likely consecutive to their change in subcellular location, from the mitochondria to the endoplasmic reticulum, after binding and sequestration. Isoform 2 and isoform 3 of RTN4 inhibit BACE1 activity and amyloid precursor protein processing.
