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.

The protein ICAM-3, also known as CD50, is a member of the intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) family consisting three members. It is a DC-SIGN ligand that is constitutively expressed on resting leukocytes, and is thus an important molecule for the first immune response. ICAM-3 comprises of five immunoglobulin-like domains, and binds LFA-1 through its two N-terminal domains. It functions not only as an adhesion molecule, but also as a potent signalling molecule. ICAM-3 binds to LFA-1 on antigen-presenting cells (APC) stabilizing the T cell-APC interaction, facilitating signaling through the CD3/TCR complex. However, recent evidence using cultured and transformed T cells suggests ICAM-3 may also function in signaling. It has been reported that CD50 molecule can play a role in developing functionally mature T lymphocytes and its expression increases during the maturation process of T lymphocytes. In addition, the interactions of ICAM-3 and LFA-1 facilitate HIV-1- induced virological synapse formation between T cells. ICAM-3 is associated with an increase of cellular radio-resistance and cancer cell proliferation. It could be considered as a candidate for anti-cancer drug development and as a cancer diagnostic marker.
