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.

Peroxiredoxin-2, also known as Natural killer cell-enhancing factor B, NKEF-B, Thiol-specific antioxidant protein, Thioredoxin peroxidase 1, Thioredoxin-dependent peroxide reductase 1, PRDX2 and NKEFB, is a cytoplasm protein which belongs to the ahpC / TSA family. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 contains one thioredoxin domain. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 is involved in redox regulation of the cell. It reduces peroxides with reducing equivalents provided through the thioredoxin system. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 is not able to receive electrons from glutaredoxin. It may play an important role in eliminating peroxides generated during metabolism. Peroxiredoxin-2 / PRDX2 might participate in the signaling cascades of growth factors and tumor necrosis factor-alpha by regulating the intracellular concentrations of H2O2.

The Peroxiredoxins / Prx are a family of peroxidases that can reduce H2O2 using an electron from thioredoxin (Trx) or other substances. The mammalian Peroxiredoxins / Prx family is divided into six groups ( PRDX1,PRDX2, PRDX3, PRDX4, PRDX5, PRDX6 ) on the basis of homology of amino acid sequences. They are located in the cytosol and play a role in the cell signaling system. All six mammalian peroxiredoxins are expressed in the lung. Peroxiredoxins / Prx is overexpressed in breast cancer tissues to a great extent suggesting that Peroxiredoxins / Prx has a proliferative effect and may be related to cancer development or progression.
