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

Fragile histidine triad, also known as FHIT, may play a key role in differentiating humans from apes. Fragile histidine triad gene belongs to the histidine triad gene family. It has been shown that fragile histidine triad synergizes with VHL, another tumor suppressor, in protecting against chemically - induced lung cancer. Fragile histidine triad gene works as a tumor suppressor as it has been demonstrated in animal studies. The exact molecular function of FHIT is still partially unclear. It also acts as a tumor suppressor of HER2/neu driven breast cancer.
