Japan’s Kazusa DNA Research Institute will soon offer vectors encoding Promega’s HaloTag with genetic content from KDRI’s catalog, the companies said this week.
The offering will initially encompass more than 1,900 KDRI ORF clones in Promega Flexi vector, and includes the coding sequence for HaloTag, a multifunctional protein tag that can be used for cellular imaging and protein purification and immobilization. Promega will soon launch protein arrays utilizing the HaloTag technology, [See PM 09/04/08].
The first vectors will be available at the beginning of 2009 through KDRI and will be distributed globally.
The KDRI content derives from large, typically difficult to clone human genes. There will also be a comprehensive catalog of human transcription factors commonly used for research and drug discovery.
