Product Description

For non-radioactive detection of receptor/ligand interaction.

 

This is the second generation of AP-TAG technology using pAPtag-2 and pAPtag-4 vectors. A secreted ligand or soluble receptor can be fused with secreted alkaline phosphatase (AP) at either its N- or C-terminus to produce an "AP-body". The resulting AP fusion protein can be expressed as a secreted protein and used directly as highly sensitive affinity agents much like an antibody.

  AP-TAG Kit A  
  pAPtag-2 (10 µg) 40 µL
  pAPtag-2 (10 µg) 40 µL

 E. coli host
GH2/P3 GH2/P3 
 Vector selection
Tet/Amp Tet/Amp 
 Secretion signal
 From insert From AP

 AP negative control  

(secretes AP alone)

No  Yes

NOTE: pAPtag-2 and pAPtag-4 plasmid vectors can only be transformed or propagated in E. coli host cells with P3 episome such as GH2/P3 Supercompetent cells (Cat. No. T601).

 

The L(left)- and R(right)-AP primers flanking the cloning sites of pAPtag-2 are used in PCR to check for the presence and size of DNA insert cloned into the vector and for sequence verification of the Ligand-AP or soluble receptor-AP fusion constructs. The L-AP4 and R-AP4 primers (not included in kit) flank the cloning sites of pAPtag-4 and can be purchased separately (see below).

 

This kit is shipped on dry ice via overnight delivery. A detailed step-by-step protocol is included.

 

Purchase of an AP-TAG Ligand-Receptor Interaction Detection System (covered by US patents 5,554,499 and 5,801,000) comes with a limited, single-user and non-transferable sublicense for use in research applications only. If you plan to use AP-TAG technology to conduct drug screening or other commercial applications, a separate sublicense is required. Please contact GenHunter for details regarding the terms and conditions or any other questions.
