Expression of EGFP Fusion Proteins for the Investigation of the Hec1 Complex

  • Ready-to-use vectors for live cell imaging
  • Large selection of genes
  • Sequence-documented vectors
  • Applications include localization, binding, and protein-protein interaction studies
  • Experimentally approved

At each centromere, a multi-protein complex binds named the kinetochore. The inner kinetochore directly binds to the centromeric chromatin during the whole cell cycle. During mitosis, further proteins of the outer kinetochore, including components of the Hec1 complex, bind to the inner kinetochore and establish a stable link between the centromeric chromatin and the microtubuli. This mechanical connection is regulated by proteins of the mitotic checkpoint. We offer expression vectors coding for human Hec1 complex proteins in fusion with EGFP. Most of the fusion proteins can be expressed either with N- or C-terminal EGFP-tag. The cipher in the vector name indicates the linker length of the fusion proteins (e.g. for vector pG-22-hHec1 the linker length is 22 amino acids).

Schematic view of the Hec1 complex

The Hec1 complex EGFP fusion proteins can be used in modern fluorescence microscopy techniques to determine
  • localization
  • binding
  • dynamics, and, when a second color is available,
  • protein-protein interactions
  • protein-protein proximities
applying fluorescence methods like FRET, FRAP, FCS, RICS, FCCS, and F3H.

Please note:
For FRET analysis, we suggest fusion proteins with short linker.
