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.

Background

Mouse cytosolic non-specific dipeptidase, also known as CNDP dipeptidase 2, Glutamate carboxypeptidase-like protein 1, Peptidase A, CNDP2 and CN2, is a cytoplasm protein which belongs to the peptidase M20A family. CNDP2 / CPGL is a cytosolic enzyme that can hydrolyze carnosine to yield l-histidine and beta-alanine. CNDP2 / CPGL hydrolyzes a variety of dipeptides including L-carnosine but has a strong preference for Cys-Gly. It may be play a role as tumor suppressor in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells. Isoform 1 of CNDP2 / CPGL is ubiquitously expressed with higher levels in kidney and liver (at protein level). Isoform 2 of CNDP2 / CPGL is expressed in fetal tissues, it is only expressed in adult liver and placental tissues. CNDP2 / CPGL is highly expressed in the histaminergic neurons in the tuberomammillary nucleus, implying that it may supply histidine to histaminergic neurons for histamine synthesis.
