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.

Enterokinase, or Enteropeptidase is a type II transmembrane, which is a member of the trypsin family of serine proteases, and plays a key role in mammalian metabolism. It is synthesized as a zymogen (proenteropeptidase) that requires activation by another protease, either trypsin or possibly duodenase. Active enteropeptidase then converts the pancreatic precursor, trypsinogen, to trypsin by cleavage of the specific trypsinogen activation peptide, Asp-Asp-Asp-Asp-Lys- Ile that is highly conserved in vertebrates. The mature trypsin in turn activates other proenzymes including chymotrypsinogen, procarboxypeptidases, and proelastases. Enterokinase consists of two subunits linked by a disulfide bond. The heavy chain achors enterokinase in the intestinal brush border membrane and the light chain is the catalytic subunit, which has the same mechanism of action as trypsin and chymotrypsin. Enterokinase is the physiological activator of trypsinogen and has a specificity for the sequence (Asp)4-Lys-Ile. Because of its high specificity towards the amino acid sequence (Asp)(4)-Lys, enterokinase is a potential tool for the cleavage of fusion proteins, which are gaining more importance in biopharmaceutical production. In addition, Enterokinase is a tool protease widely utilized in the cleavage of recombinant fusion proteins.
