OET Introduces a new Range of Transfer Plasmids and Expands Distribution Network
Product News May 07, 2009
Oxford Expression Technologies Ltd (OET) has appointed new distribution partners in North America (Canada, USA); Europe (Scandinavia, Italy and The Netherlands); and Asia (Japan, India, China, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea).
The Company has also launched a new range of transfer plasmids with unique signal sequences and promoters, including pOET-1™ and pOET-1N™ that increase cloning efficiency and expression of foreign genes.
OET’s latest transfer plasmids and existing expression suite of flashBAC™ products (including flashBACGOLD™, flashBAC10™ and flashBACULTRA™) will be available both directly from the Company and the newly appointed distributors.
pOET transfer plasmids have been designed to be smaller for improved cloning efficiency. Both pOET-1 plasmids contain a large multiple cloning site (MCS) allowing foreign genes to be inserted in the correct orientation.
AcMNPV sequences flanking the gene in the transfer plasmid’s MCS allow recombination with the flashBAC™ DNA to insert the expression cassette into the polyhedron (polh) locus under the control of the polh promoter.
Additionally, pOET-1N™ has been designed for high level expression of foreign genes fused to an N-terminal 6×His tag, greatly easing the purification of the recombinant protein using Ni-NTA Agarose.
