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

Dickkopf (DKK) family proteins, consisting of DKK-1, DKK-2, DKK-3 and DKK-4, function as secreted Wnt antagonists by inhibiting Wnt coreceptors LRP5/6. DKK-1, DKK-2, and DKK-4 also bind cell surface Kremen-1 or Kremen-2 and promote the internalization of LRP5/6. Dickkopf related protein 1 (DKK-1) was initially identified as an inducer of head formation in Xenopus embryos. DKK-1 protein modulates Wnt signaling pathway during embryonic development. Increased levels of DKK-1 are found in the majority of lung cancers, esophageal squamous cell carcinomas, and hormone-resistant breast cancers, while DKK-1 expression is decreased in malignant melanoma and colorectal cancers.
