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

Macrophage receptor MARCO, also known as Macrophage receptor with collagenous structure and Marco, is a single-pass type I I membrane protein. MARCO is a member of the class A scavenger receptor family and is part of the innate antimicrobial immune system. It is expressed in subpopulations of macrophages in the spleen and the medullary cord of lymph nodes. Although it is expressed on subsets of macrophages, it can be upregulated on other macrophages after bacterial infection. The strategic position of MARCO-expressing cells in lymphoid organs suggests an important role for this bacteria-binding molecule in removal of pathogens. MARCO has a short N-terminal cytoplasmic domain, a transmembrane domain, and a large extracellular part composed of a 75-residue long spacer domain, a 270-residue collagenous domain, and a 99-residue long scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) domain. It is possible that cooperation between the SRCR domain and the collagenous domain is needed for high-affinity bacterial binding, or that the SRCR domain has to be in a trimeric form to effectively bind to bacteria
