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 dual specificity mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 4, also known as MAP kinase kinase 4, MAPKK4, JNK-activating kinase 1, MAPK/ERK kinase 4, SAPK/ERK kinase 1, c-Jun N-terminal kinase kinase 1, JNKK and MAP2K4, is a protein which belongs to the protein kinase superfamily, STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family and MAP kinase kinase subfamily. MAP2K4 / JNKK1 is a protein kinase which is a direct activator of MAP kinases in response to various environmental stresses or mitogenic stimuli. MAP2K4 / JNKK1 has been shown to activate MAPK8 / JNK1, MAPK9 / JNK2, and MAPK14 / p38, but not MAPK1 / ERK2 or MAPK3 / ERK1. MAP2K4 / JNKK1 is phosphorylated, and thus activated by MAP3K1 / MEKK. The stress-activated protein kinase (SAPK) pathways represent phosphorylation cascades that convey pro-apoptotic signals. The mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MAPKK) homolog MAP2K4 ( MKK4, SEK, JNKK1 ) is a centrally-placed mediator of the SAPK pathways.
