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

Aspartate aminotransferase is a pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzyme which exists in cytoplasmic and mitochondrial forms, aspartate aminotransferase and GOT2, respectively. GOT plays a role in amino acid metabolism and the urea and tricarboxylic acid cycles. The two enzymes are homodimeric and show close homology. There is a rare in-frame deletion in aspartate aminotransferase gene, which inactivates cytosolic aspartate aminotransferase(cAST) enzyme in the Old Order Amish. This may help to understand structure and function of the enzyme and would be useful for predicting serum aspartate AST levels.
