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

PS6K, also known as RPS6KB1, is a serine/threonine-protein kinase. It belongs to the RSK (ribosomal s6 kinase) family. Members of this family function in signal transduction. PS6K is an isoform of p70 ribosomal S6 kinase (S6K). S6K can be activated by mitogenic stimuli such as growth factors, insulin and cytokines. It phosphorylates the ribosomal protein S6. PS6K also phosphorylates other proteins such as elF4B, eEF2K and SKAR. It is a crucial effector of mTOR(rapamycin) signaling. PS6K is dissociated from the EIF3 complex and activated upon mitogenic stimulation, phosphorylation by the mammalian target of mTOR complex 1 (mTORC1). Its active form then phosphorylates and activates several substrates in the preinitiation complex, including the EIF2B complex and the cap-binding complex component EIF4B. PS6K also functions in cell proliferation, cell growth and cell cycle progression.
