pET Expression System 41 plus Competent Cells
The pET-41a-c(+) and pET-42a-c(+) vectors incorporate the schistosomal glutathione-S-transferase (GST; GST•Tag) coding sequence as a fusion partner. The GST•Tag sequence has been reported to enhance the production and in some cases the solubility of its fusion partners (Smith 1998). When expressed in a soluble, properly folded form, GST•Tag fusion proteins can be purified with immobilized glutathione. Gentle elution is achieved with buffers containing reduced glutathione. Quantification of soluble GST fusions is also possible by assaying the transferase activity. The pET-41 and -42 series feature the powerful T7lac promoter, and encode the GST•Tag (220 aa) sequence, proteolytic sites, His•Tag (6 aa) sequence, and S•Tag (15 aa) sequence.
In contrast to other commercially available GST-fusion vectors, the Xa (IleGluGlyArg, pET-42 series) and enterokinase (AspAspAspAspLys, pET-41 series) proteolytic cleavage sites have been engineered to allow removal of 100% of the vector-encoded sequences and the generation of native proteins with their authentic N-terminal residues. Unfused proteins can be produced by using the Nde I cloning site. A version of pET-41 is available as a linearized vector prepared for ligation-independent cloning (LIC) of PCR products.
Another pET vector with the GST•Tag sequence is pET-49b(+). Please see the website description for more information. The His•Tag and S•Tag sequences enable alternative protein detection and purification procedures to be performed. For example, when enhancing purity with a separate purification method, or when purifying under denaturing conditions.
