Vector 3 Information

The Vector 3 is 5.4kb in length, and contains the the amplicin resistance gene, conferring selection of the plasmid in E. coli., the kanamycin resistance gene (neomycin for mammalian selection), and the CMV promoter upstream of the cDNA insert. The SV40 origin allows for replication in mammalian cells, the ColE1 origin is the bacterial origin of replication, and the f1 origin is the filamentous phage origin of replication. The plasmid has multiple cloning sites as shown below. NOTE: the restriction enzymes used in each vector 3 clone is indicated in the product datasheet.

Vector 3 Usage Suggestion

The coding sequence can be easily obtained by digesting the vector with proper restriction enzyme(s). The coding sequence can also be amplified by PCR with primer pair SP6 and T7.

Background

Nerve growth factor (NGF) is important for the development and maintenance of the sympathetic and sensory nervous systems. NGF protein was identified as a large complex consisting of three non-covalently linked subunits, α, β, and γ, among which, the β subunit, called β-NGF (beta-NGF), was demonstrated to exhibits the growth stimulating activity of NGF protein. NGFB/beta-NGF gene is a member of the NGF-beta family and encodes a secreted protein which homodimerizes and is incorporated into a larger complex. NGF protein acts via at least two receptors on the surface of cells (TrkA and p75 receptors) to regulate neuronal survival, promote neurite outgrowth, and up-regulate certain neuronal functions such as mediation of pain and inflammation. In addition, previous studies indicated that NGF may also have an important role in the regulation of the immune system.
