CD63-Vhb Fusion Protein
|CD63-Vhb Fusion Protein|
|Function||Membrane Protein Anchoring|
|Use in||Mammalian cells|
|RFC standard||Not Compatible Due to Assembly|
This part is a composite part CD63-Vhb Fusion Protein. Vhb is connected to the 3 prime of CD63 sequence/ C- terminus of CD63 Protein. After translation in mammalian cell, the fusion protein will first be transported to the endosome and then through inward budding and exocytosis be exported on the membrane of exosomes. Vhb is located inside the exosome.

Prove of Expression
Team SHSU_China used HEK 293T cells in their exosome experiments. After using sequencing to conform the sequence of the fusion protein, 2ug of vecter is transfected to a 60mm plate using lipofectamine 2000. Exosomes are extracted from the 4ml culture media using total exosome isolation kit (from cell culture media) from Invitrogen. Cells and exosomes are lysed using Ripa.
Cell content western blotting first proved successful translation of PNCV plasmids inside HEK 293T cells. Exosome content shown successful result of fusion protein band around 40 kda. TEM result of sample shown that the protein doesn’t effect the shape or the concentration of exosomes. COD result compared to normal exosomes shown that the fusion protein contains heme group that increases the chemical demand of exosomes and thus proving the function of Vhb is not disturbed. Also, color difference can be seen between normal and fusion-protein containing exosomes.
