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.

ROBO2 belongs to the ROBO family. Members of the ROBO family are a group of highly conserved transmembrane glycoproteins that make up a small subgroup of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily. They are best known for their roles as receptors for the Slit family of repellent axon guidance cues. In structure, ROBOs are characterized by five C2-type Ig-like repeats, three fibronectin type III domains, a transmembrane region, and an intracellular domain with three (ROBO3) or four (ROBO1, 2) CC (conserved cytoplasmic) motifs. ROBO2 is a receptor for SLIT2, and probably SLIT1, which are thought to act as molecular guidance cue in cellular migration, including axonal navigation at the ventral midline of the neural tube and projection of axons to different regions during neuronal development. ROBO2 also abrogates SLIT-ROBO signaling in vitro.
