The vector sequence has been compiled using the information from sequence databases, published literature, and other sources, together with partial sequences obtained by Evrogen. This vector has not been completely sequenced.
pFusionRed-cadherin is a mammalian expression vector encoding FusionRed-VE-cadherin fusion protein (see reporter description). The vector can be used for fluorescent labeling of cadherin in living cells.
HeLa cell expressing fusion of human VE-cadherin with FusionRed.
Scale bar represents 10 μm. Data from Shemiakina et al., 2012
FusionRed codon usage is optimized for high expression in mammalian cells (humanized) [Haas et al., 1996]. Human VE-cadherin is fused to the FusionRed N-terminus.
pFusionRed-cadherin vector can be used as a source of FusionRed-VE-cadherin hybrid sequence. The vector backbone contains unique restriction sites that permit its excision and further insertion into expression vector of choice.
Note: The plasmid DNA was isolated from dam+-methylated
The vector backbone contains immediate early promoter of cytomegalovirus (PCMV IE) for protein expression, SV40 origin for replication in mammalian cells expressing SV40 T-antigen, pUC origin of replication for propagation in
SV40 early promoter (PSV40) provides neomycin resistance gene (Neor) expression to select stably transfected eukaryotic cells using G418. Bacterial promoter (P) provides kanamycin resistance gene expression (Kanr) in
Expression in mammalian cells
pFusionRed-cadherin vector can be transfected into mammalian cells by any known transfection method. CMV promoter provides strong, constitutive expression of the FusionRed-VE-cadherin fusion in eukaryotic cells. If required, stable transformants can be selected using G418 [Gorman, 1985].
