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.

Immunoglobulin superfamily member 4C (IGSF4C), also known as CADM4 or NECL-4, is an immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily molecule showing significant homology with a lung tumor suppressor, TSLC1. CADM4/IGSF4C/NECL-4 protein is mainly expressed in the kidney, bladder, and prostate in addition to the brain. Experiments have reported the biological significance of CADM4/IGSF4C/NECL-4 in the urinary tissues. An immunohistochemical study reveals that CADM4 is expressed at the cell-cell attachment sites in the renal tubules, the transitional epithelia of the bladder, and the glandular epithelia of the prostate. IGSF4-immunoreactivity (IR) was observed diffusely in the telencephalic wall, whereas it became rather confined to the subplate, the cortical plate and the subventricular zone as the development proceeded. IGSF4-IR gradually decreased after birth and disappeared in adulthood. IGSF4 remained at low levels throughout embryonic stage, whereas it increased after birth. These spatiotemporal patterns of the expression suggest that IGSF4 plays crucial roles in the development of both telencephalon and cerebellum. CADM4/IGSF4C/NECL-4 is ectopically expressed in adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) cells, providing not only a diagnostic marker for ATL, but also a possible therapeutic target against its invasion. The distinct roles of CADM4/IGSF4C/NECL-4 in the oncogenesis of carcinomas and ATL could be due to tissue-specific differences in the downstream cascades, and is a novel concept with respect to cell adhesion in human oncogenesis.
