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

PDZ binding kinase (PBK), also known as TOPK (T-LAK cell-originated protein kinase), is a serine/threonine kinase related to the dual specific mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MAPKK) family, and has all the characteristic protein kinase subdomains and a C-terminal PDZ-binding T/SXV motif. PBK is expressed in the testis restrictedly expressed in outer cell layer of seminiferous tubules, as well as placenta. PBK may be enrolled in the activation of lymphoid cells and support testicular functions, with a suggested role in the process of spermatogenesis.This mitotic kinase phosphorylates MAP kinase p38 and seems to be active in mitosis. When phosphorylated, PBK forms a protein-protein interaction with tumor suppressor p53 (TP53), leading to TP53 destabilization and attenuation of G2/M checkpoint during doxorubicin-induced DNA damage. The expression level of PBK is thus upregulated in a variety of neoplasms including hematological malignancies.
