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.

Product nameProduct name

WIF1, also known as WIF-1 and wnt inhibitory factor 1, is a secreted protein which binds WNT proteins and inhibits their activities. It contains a WNT inhibitory factor (WIF) domain and 5 epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domains. WNT proteins are extracellular signaling molecules involved in the control of embryonic development. WIF1 may be involved in mesoderm segmentation and can be detected in fish, amphibia and mammals. WIF-1 is a recurrent target in human salivary gland oncogenesis. Downregulation of WIF1 takes part in the development and progression of pleomorphic adenomas. WIF1 also is a tumor suppressor, and has been found to be epigenetically silenced in various cancers, specifically in nonfunctioning pituitary tumors. WIF1 are expected to have molecular function (protein tyrosine kinase activity) and to localize in various compartments (extracellular space, extracellular region).
