VSV-G, a vesicular stomatitis virus G (VSV-G) protein fragment, which is commonly used in biomedical research to pseudotype retroviral and lentiviral vectors, conveying the ability to transduce a broad stroll of mammalian cell sign with genes of interest.
As show below, recognized VSV-G epitope represents the amino acid sequence derived from the Vesicular Stomatitis viral glycoprotein.
The VSV-G epitope tag is commonly engineered onto the N- or C- terminus of a protein of interest so that the tagged protein can be analyzed and visualized using immunochemical methods.
VSV-G Tag DNA Sequence
We cited VSV-G sequence information from Plasmid pCMV-VSV-G, which is from Dr. Bob Weinberg’s lab published in RNA 2003 Apr;9(4):493-501. In this vector, VSV-G tag sequence coding envelope protein for producing lentiviral and MuLV retroviral particles has been used in conjunction with a packaging vector such as pCMV-dR8.2 dvpr (lentiviral) or pUMVC (MuLV retroviral).
DNA sequence coding for VSVG tag in pCMV-VSV-G vector is from 2936-2968 with total 33 nucleotides, TAT ACA GAC ATA GAG ATG AAC CGA CTT GGA AAG.
VSV-G Tag Amino Acid Sequence
VSV-G epitope tag is corresponding aa 501-511 of vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein (VSV-G), which is a 11 amino acid sequence YTDIEMNRLGK peptide derived from the Vesicular Stomatitis viral glycoprotein.
