What binds to the CMV promoter?

The activation of the CMV promoter by Mekk1, on the other hand, is attributed to the proximal CRE binding site in the promoter. These findings may be of interest to investigators who use CMV (or other viral) promoter driven vectors for either comparative or quantitative gene expression, or effect on promoter activity.

What is EF1 alpha promoter?

Human elongation factor-1 alpha (EF-1 alpha) is a constitutive promoter of human origin that can be used to drive ectopic gene expression in various in vitro and in vivo contexts.

What is the difference between cloning and expression vectors?

An expression vector is a plasmid designed for protein expression in various cells, but a cloning vector is a plasmid that can be stably maintained a foreign DNA fragment in an organism, and used for cloning purposes.

What is the purpose of expression cloning?

Expression cloning involves the selection of specific polypeptides, generated from a cDNA or genomic DNA library, based on certain characteristics of the expressed proteins, such as antibody or ligand binding, recognition by T-cells, function, or complementation of cell defects.

What is SnapGene viewer?

SnapGene Viewer is revolutionary software that allows molecular biologists to create, browse, and share richly annotated DNA sequence files up to 1 Gbp in length.

How do you add amino acids to Snapgene?

Use the “Amino Acids Codes” Button on the Side Toolbar Click the “Use 1/3 amino acids codes” button on the side toolbar to toggle between display of one or three amino acids codes in Sequence view. The display of one or three amino acids codes also applies to proteins displayed in “Compact Format”.

How does CMV affect T cells?

CMV infection affects the phenotype but not the lifespan of T-cells in humans. Both CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells in CMV-infected individuals upregulate the expression of senescence markers (e.g. CD57, KLRG-1) and downregulate the expression of co-stimulatory and proliferation markers (e.g. CD28, Ki-67).
