KRAS4b Baculovirus Expression Vectors

These plasmids are pFastBac style baculovirus expression vectors in which human KRAS is expressed from the baculovirus polyhedrin promoter with a maltose binding protein solubility tag.

  • KRAS gene is full-length including C-terminal CVIM sequence targeting the protein for proper farnesylation and membrane localization when produced in insect cells with coexpressed farnesyltransferase
  • Amino terminal His6 tag allows for easy downstream purification
  • TEV protease cleavage site downstream of the MBP fusion permits tag removal (leaving single additional glycine residue on the amino terminal end of the final KRAS protein)
  • Plasmids differ only in the mutation in the human KRAS gene
  • Most useful when coupled with: Baculovirus AcMNPV Expressing E. coli Cell Line (DE35)

KRAS gene makes a protein called K-Ras that is involved primarily in regulating cell division. As part of a signaling pathway known as the RAS/MAPK pathway, the protein relays signals from outside the cell to the cell's nucleus. These signals instruct the cell to grow and divide or to mature and take on specialized functions (differentiate). The KRAS gene is also an oncogene, when mutated normal cells can be become cancerous.
