pMD18-T Simple Vector Information

pMD18-T Simple Vector is a high-efficiency TA cloning vector constructed from pUC18, of which the initial multiple cloning sites (MCS) were destroyed. Thus the cDNA should be amplified by PCR with primers containing a restriction site for subclone. Competent cells appropriate for pUC18 are also appropriated for the Vector, e.g. JM109, DH5α, TOP10. The pMD18-T Simple Vector is 2.6kb in size. Selection of the plasmid in E. coli is conferred by the ampicillin resistance gene. The coding sequence was inserted by TA cloning at site 425.

pMD18-T Simple Usage Suggestion

The coding sequence can be amplified by PCR with M13-47 and RV-M primers.

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.
